RESTREPO BERMUDEZ, Carlos Enrique. THE "DEATH OF GOD" AND THE ONTO-THEOLOGICAL CONSTITUTION OF METAPHYSICS. Estud.filos [online]. 2007, n.36, pp. 151-171. ISSN 0121-3628.
Heideggerian interpretation of the "Death of God" in Nietzsche entails the essential importance of a movement according to which Metaphysics is overcome. The said movement is verified in the most influential of modern Philosophies, mostly in the Philosophies of Kant and Hegel. In Heideggers words, after Nietzsche "the only road for Philosophy is its perversion and denaturalization, so we have no other alternatives in view for her". This overcoming jeopardizes the whole of the History of Being that has taken place and enables the discovery, at the heart of the same Metaphysics, of its Onto-Theological constitution. This paper examines the "Death of God" in the light of the postulate of Onto-Theology as Essence of Metaphysics, and the consecuences therefrom derived for the thought of God in Contemporary Philosophy.
