The age of nothing : how we have sought to live since the death of God / Peter Watson.
Utgiver: London : Weidenfeld & Nicolson,
ISBN: 9780297859840 (hbk.) :
Since Friedrich Nietzche roundly declared that 'God is dead' in 1882, a raft of reflective and courageous individuals have devoted their creative energies to devising ways to live without Him, turning instead to invention, enthusiasm, hope, wit and above all various forms of self-reliance. Their brave, innovative story has gone untold - until now. In this book historian Peter Watson offers a sweeping narrative of the secular philosophers and poets, psychologists and other scientists, painters and playwrights, novelists and even choreographers who have forged a thrilling, bold path in the absence of religious belief.
