The idea of God can easily arise like this: we notice degrees of perfection among finite beings -- some are more perfect (or less imperfect) than others. And to reach the idea of God, we just project the scale upward and outward to infinity. Thus there seems to be no need for an actually existing God to account for the existence of the idea.   But he contradicts himself: "Consequently, Kant first discusses the transcendental proof of God's existence, arguing that the other proofs ultimately depend on it." "Kant's rejection of all possible proofs of God's existence and his moving God out of the sphere of ontology, rules out the traditional ground of a systematic universe.".

The existence of an orderly universe containing life points to a Creator. The Bible says: “Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God.” (Hebrews ) Although this logic is simple, many well-educated people find it to be powerful. * As humans, we have an innate desire to understand the. God is dead. 'God is Dead' (German: „Gott ist tot“ ; also known as The Death of God) is a widely quoted statement by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche used the phrase to express his idea that the Enlightenment had eliminated the possibility of the existence of God.

Hegel-by-HyperText Resources. The Historical Fate of Hegel's Doctrine The Expurgation of Hegelianism. Once we have read what Hegel has to tell us, and found a way of understanding it, of grasping its positive content, we want to see what has been said against it, and to see how Hegel's views have fared in the world. In other words, before making up our own mind and subjecting Hegel's writings.   The death of God didn’t strike Nietzsche as an entirely good thing. Without a God, the basic belief system of Western Europe was in jeopardy. It’s been years since Friedrich Nietzsche.

Hegel insists that the proofs for God's existence are a quite reasonable endeavour for those who seek to know God, and not just know things. This knowledge is not the knowledge of another thing (for God is not a thing) but a matter of 'the ascent of spirit to God' (62).

Martin Wendte: Review of Hegel and Christian Theology. A Reading of the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion heterodox philosophy giving up the idea of the possibility to conceptualise God at all, and a pre-critical ontotheology.

This concept of God as a totality encom-passing otherness mediates between a postmodern, Levinas-like overemphasisAuthor: Martin Wendte. Man as a Place of God is an examination of Levinas’ philosophy of religion in the light of his ethics and anthropology. It provides a lively introduction to the main themes of Levinas’ thought and offers critical perspectives on Levinas by relating his work to that of Heidegger, Ricoeur, Rorty, Derrida and Vattimo.

According to Hegel, the final development of the man-God, the final breakthrough into totality and infinity, was at hand. The most highly developed state in the history of the world was now in place — the existing Prussian monarchy under King Friedrich Wilhelm III.

8) According to Wallace, Hegel does not assert that God is simply us, finite humans, but neither does he assert that God is simply something other than us (a power existing outside).

8) In some sense then, human freedom and self-transcendence are divine, are God. Ethics as first philosophy. Emmanuel Levinas is one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth, but the complexity of his thought, as well as Heidegger’s, prevents a real spread / democratization of his work.

One of his most important works is Totality and Infinity: An essay on the latter, Levinas, according to a phenomenological method, describes how subjectivity arises from.

René Descartes' () "Proofs of God's Existence" is a series of arguments that he posits in his treatise (formal philosophical observation) "Meditations on First Philosophy," first appearing in "Meditation III. of God: that He exists."and discussed in more depth in "Meditation V: Of the essence of material things, and, again, of God, that He exists."Author: Andrea Borghini.

So, one cannot prove that God exists, but one can assume that he exists through reason. – To fully understand Kant’s rather complex argument, one must really understand his whole philosophy, especially his ontology (theory of existence), epistemology (theory of knowledge – which is linked to his ontology), and his ethical theory.

The way in which the other presents himself, exceeding the idea of the other in me, we here name face The face of the Other at each moment destroys and overflows the plastic image it leaves me, the idea existing to my own measure It expresses itself. (Totality and Infinity ) The face is a living presence; it is expression.

It is not for Levinas to return to the humanism of the Enlightenment, to define the man against the powers of reason, but to give meaning to humans from its weakness, the nakedness of his face, “nudity crying its strangeness in the world, his loneliness, death, hidden in his being,” wrote Levinas in the preface to Totality and Infinity.

However, Levinas did not follow through Descartes' ontological proof of God's existence since this is still based on causality. A proof of God based on causality is still within the domain of ontotheology.

For Levinas, the science of phenomenology cannot establish the idea of God because God does not fit in the noema-noesis correlation. God is what grounds the existence of every contingent thing, making it possible, sustaining it through time, unifying it, giving it actuality.

God is. -Descartes first proof: He reasoned, because there must be a cause for his idea, and because there must be as much reality or perfection in the cause of an idea as there is in the content of the idea, and because he himself therefore certainly could not be the cause of the idea, it follows, he concluded, that God.

The proof that this significance is the absolute truth is the mediation by which nature is suspended into the spirit, and the spirit suspends its subjectivity through its activity into the absolute spirit, thereby placing itself as its final ground in such a way that this mediation.

A version of God made the great systems of Hegel and Schelling, known together as German idealism, possible. Nietzsche, as a midth-century German philosopher, first declared God Author: Lesley Chamberlain.

The central idea of the Process Theology of A. Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne - the idea of a God evolving in the universe through history - derives from Hegel.

So do more modern ideas that the universe is an God evolving towards ever greater complexity and consciousness, and that we humans are somehow a central part of this drama. The God series, starting with The God Game, reveals the astonishing power of ontological mathematics to account for everything, including things such as free will, irrationalism, emotion, consciousness and qualia, which seem to have no connection with mathematics.5/5(2).

The clearest, most irrefragable proof that man in religion contemplates himself as the object of the Divine Being, as the end of the divine activity, that thus in religion he has relation only to his own nature, only to himself—the clearest, most irrefragable proof of this is the love of God to man, the basis and central point of religion (57).

Alterity and Asymmetry in Levinas’s Ethical Phenomenology enlisting Rosenzweig, Levinas criticizes Husserl in the name of ethics and justice, inin the Intuition book, Levinas criticizes Husserl under the influence of Heidegger, that is to say, in the name of being.

Beneath representation he sees not more representation but presence. This is because God cannot be put in a test tube and either verified or falsified. God is a spiritual being and is outside the reach of empirical scientific research.

Christians cannot prove God the existence of God with absolute certainty, nor can atheists disprove his existence with any certainty.This apocryphal tale of a college-age Albert Einstein proving the existence of God to his atheist professor first began circulating in One reason it isn't true is that a more elaborate version of the same story was already making the rounds five years before that with no mention of Einstein in it at all.Ferdinand Christian Baur’s thought about religion focuses on the idea of Gnosis in close connection with the notion of history, but rather than favor a traditional approach, he prefers a different path: a “new” understanding of religion which draws quite heavily on Hegel’s philosophy, promoting the idea that history is the realm where God and man exist and work together.
