Nietzsche vs. Christianity: Introduction

with one comment

Earlier this spring, I taught a course with the Encore program at NC State University entitled Nietzsche vs. Christianity.  In case any of you who were in the course (or who weren’t) wanted the audio or lecture outlines…  I will post those here.

The outline of the course is as follows:

I.  Nietzschean Thought

II.  Christian Thought

III.  Nietzsche’s Objections to Christianity

IV.  Christianities’ Response to Nietzschean Objections

V.  A Potential Synthesis… and Talking Points

VI.  Collision DVD

  1. Please explain how “The Communist Manifesto” & Marxist ideology (which is essentially about economics, the class system & capitalist exploitation) is “inherently atheistic.”

    Please explain how morality or one’s subscribing to decent moral behavior towards one’s fellow human beings, is untenable without a pre-existing belief in a God, any God, if not a Christian God.

    I don’t know what is more astounding: your assumptions or your absolute belief in them, unchallenged by clear rational thought.
