Ch. 2 – Transparent Things

This chapter progresses with a reflection on the nature of objects and things. The task is to present a philosophical reflection on how humans can have a meaningful relation to the objects of their world.  Atheist reflection must begin with what is before its eyes as part of the wider environment. Using insights from Plato, Sartre and Blanchot, a revitalization of atheism will I argue remain committed to questioning the perpetual fragility of objects. This will in turn demonstrate the possibility of an atheism without reification and objectification, and furthers the argument that a radical atheism can offer a meaningful response to negation and nihilism.
