In his recent book Gott denken, Holm Tetens argues for a theist claim. Some of his arguments for this claim are based on his criticism of a particular account of science that Tetens attributes to atheists. This account of science consists in the normative principle of ,,methodological atheism" and two additional normative principles. In this paper, I will present three objections to Tetens' criticism. My main objection is that – contrary to Tetens' view – atheists do not have to accept methodological atheism (nor do many atheists accept this principle as a matter of fact). Instead, I will argue that the standard arguments by atheists are best understood in terms of (what I call) Laplacean atheism.

More about this publication?
  • The journal Zeitschrift für philosophische Forschung, appearing since 1946, is among the most important academic German language journals. It is open to all topics, approaches, and positions of philosophical thought. Given the increasing differentiation and specialization of the field, it thus constitutes a forum offering its various disciplines the opportunity for mutual recognition and exchange. The articles published in it are subject to an anonymous peer review in which internationally renowned scholars of all areas of contemporary philosophical research participate.

    Die seit 1946 erscheinende Zeitschrift für philosophische Forschung gehört zu den wichtigsten deutschsprachigen Fachzeitschriften und steht allen Themen, Richtungen und Positionen der philosophischen Forschung offen. Angesichts der zunehmenden Ausdifferenzierung und Spezialisierung des Faches bietet sie damit auch ein Forum, in dem die verschiedenen Teildisziplinen sich gegenseitig wahrnehmen und in ein gemeinsames Gespräch kommen können. Die in ihr publizierten Abhandlungen durchlaufen ein anonymes Begutachtungsverfahren, an dem international anerkannte Forscher aus allen Spezialgebieten der gegenwärtigen philosophischen Forschung beteiligt sind.
