Difficult Atheism: Post-Theological Thinking in Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Quentin Meillassoux

Synopsis

Drawing primarily on the work of Alain Badiou and Jean-Luc Nancy, plus Quentin Meillassoux and Slavoj Zizek, Watkin explores the theme of atheism through the ideas of the death of God and nihilism and probes the limits of any "atheistic politics." Difficult Atheism argues that rigorous atheism is elusive and that Continental thought, even in its most stridently atheistic guises, has yet to fully come to terms with the death of God.
