Abstract

“God is Dead”—one of the most famous lines in philosophy, declared in 1882 by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first introduced the idea that society no longer needed a God. Though some interpret this quote as meaning the literal death of God, the phrase was used by Nietzsche to point out that the Age of Enlightenment had displaced the role of religion with science and philosophy. We, as a human society, had outgrown religion.
