Department of Systematic Theology and Philosophy


Current post-metaphysic thought on religion and God as a rule follows in the footsteps of Heidegger's critique of metaphysics as ontotheology. Philosophers like Levinas, Marion, Derrida, Vattimo et. al. look for new roads in the philosophical rethinking of the question of God. My research project concerns the issue of the right or wrong of the ontotheology critique.
