Humanism and the death of God : searching for the good after Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche
Osborn, Ronald E., 1975- author
Oxford ; Oxford University Press, 2017
Naturalism and nihilism -- Dignity after Darwin -- Rights after Marx -- Equality after Nietzsche -- Beyond humanism.

'Humanism and the Death of God' is a critical exploration of secular humanism and its discontents. Through close readings of three exemplary nineteenth-century philosophical naturalists or materialists, who perhaps more than anyone set the stage for our contemporary quandaries when it comes to questions of human nature and moral obligation, Ronald E. Osborn argues that 'the death of God' ultimately tends toward the death of liberal understandings of the human as well. Any fully persuasive defense of humanistic values - including the core humanistic concepts of inviolable dignity, rights, and equality attaching to each individual - requires an essentially religious vision of personhood. Osborn shows such a vision is found in an especially dramatic and historically consequential way in the scandalous particularity of the Christian narrative of God becoming a human. He does not attempt to provide logical proofs for the central claims of Christian humanism along the lines some philosophers might demand. Instead, this study demonstrates how philosophical naturalism or materialism, and secular humanisms and anti-humanisms, might be persuasively read from the perspective of a classically orthodox Christian faith.

The Norse myths : a guide to the gods and heroes
Larrington, Carolyne, author
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson, 2017
Introduction: Sources and survivals -- The gods and goddesses -- Creating and crafting the world -- Opposing powers -- Fit for Valhöll : human heroes -- Heroes of the Viking world -- End times-- and renewal.

The Norse Myths presents the infamous Viking gods, from the mighty Asyr, led by Odin, and the mysterious Vanir, to Thor and the mythological cosmos they inhabit. Passages translated from Old Norse bring this legendary world to life, from the myths of creation to ragnarök, the prophesied end of the world at the hands of Loki's army of monsters and giants, and everything that comes in between: the long and problematic relationship between the gods and the giants, the (mis)adventures of human heroes and heroines, with their family feuds, revenges, marriages, and murders; and the interaction between the gods and mortals.
