    This book presents a reading of Martin Heidegger’s philosophy as an effort to strike a middle position between the philosophies of Plato and Friedrich Nietzsche. Duane Armitage interprets the history of Western philosophy as comprising a struggle over the meaning of “being,” and argues that this struggle is ultimately between materialism and idealism, and, in the end, between atheism and theism. This work therefore concerns the question of the meaning of the so called “death of God” in the context of contemporary Continental Philosophy.

    ✓ Presents a distinctive focus on Heideggers engagement with Nietzsche
    ✓ Seeks to assess whether Heidegger's conclusions about Nietzsche are correct
    ✓ Questions whether Heidegger's thinking overcomes the problems with Neitzsche's reductionism, so as to open up a new place for religious and theistic questions
