Abstract

This chapter examines Paul Ricoeur's contribution to understanding the relation between religion and atheism. In particular, it provides an analysis of how Ricoeur sees atheism articulating essential criticisms of religion via Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud that give rise to a new conception of religion and faith.
