Logos against Itself and the Death of God
This chapter examines Friedrich Nietzsche's inherent logic or logos (“internalizing movement”), which he lays bare within the history of Christianity. It argues that Nietzsche's genealogical argument about the history of Western thought returns to the “beginnings” in order to show how the logos of Christianity turns against itself. It shows that Nietzsche, rather than make yet another argument against the existence of God, must work through the very history of theological thinking in order to get to the very roots of the idea of God in the tradition of Christianity. It also discusses Nietzsche's claim that the entire history of Christianity is a “weak” form of believing in God, including or especially its morality, along with his view that the death of God is murder.
