This module provides students with an approach to the philosophy of religion shaped by a range of thinkers in the 'Continental' European tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries. It begins by considering the critique of the concept of God (with particular reference to the role played by Feuerbach) and the role of religion in the writings of 'the masters of suspicion' (Nietzsche, Marx and Freud), and proceeds to consider different responses to the critique of God and religion. Attention will be paid to those like Sartre who suggest that the death of God is necessary for human freedom, and to those like Kierkegaard, Irigaray and Kristeva who suggest different ways of approaching the divine for a creative philosophy of religion.
