Semester 1 unit | Atheism for Christians

Semester 1 unit at Trinity College Theological School

This unit charts a course through a variety of modern forms of unbelief in order to provide students with the analytical skills to invert and understand the problematic forms of belief that are negated by unbelief. The supposition is, then, that behind every atheism is a theism that ought to be denied. This unit functions to provide two things then: first, it serves as an introduction to modern philosophy insofar as it pertains to the question of God, and, second, it serves as a course in the doctrine of God and negative theology as the students learn in practice the art of negation endemic to the Christian tradition.
