Einleitung

Generell lässt sich sagen, dass die islamische Ideengeschichte auf drei Säulen beruht. Diese sind: Kalām (systematische Theologie), Sufismus und die islamische Philosophie. Auch wenn ihre Referenzen, Terminologien und Schlussfolgerungen voneinander abweichen, diskutieren alle drei Disziplinen ähnliche Themen.

The Mad Man and the Old God.

An Essay on Friedrich Nietzsche’s Apocalypse of Human Existence (Revised Version)

No. 260 (2020)

By Edmund Weber

 Where has he gone? He called, I will tell you” We have killed him, – you and me! We all are his murderers! … God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.

Do we still hear nothing of the noise of the grave-diggers who are burying God?

  1. Einleitung

Seit einiger Zeit ist festzustellen, dass in modernen religiösen Organisationen oftmals eine „höhere Wirklichkeit“ gelehrt wird, die eine alle Religionsgrenzen transzendierende Wahrheit voraussetzt.
