Example text

The spirit of the Master brooded over Feuerbach 's work, as Brazill com­ ments: ' Hegel had insisted that man's original comprehension of the di­ vine occurred in human terms, that the divine was really man's produc­ tion, his creation. e. » And, regarding the representation of the divine in the form of gods, Hegel said: « . . the human being is the womb that conceived them, the breast that suckled them, and the spiritual that gave them gran­ deur and purity . . Thus the honour of the human is swallowed up in the honour of the divine.

Thus, writes Tucker further: ' instead of saying with Hegel that man is God in self-alienation, one must turn the proposition on its head and say : God is man in his self-realisation. , 85). Christianity, the most subjective religion carries to an extreme the con­ tradiction of love and faith; it qualifies love as ' Christian ' and restricts it to those who share faith in the incarnation of God as Christ. Thus Chris­ tians ' in the certainty of the divine nature of their emotions, the truth and unassailableness of their subjective feelings, converted that which to the ancients was a theoretic problem into an immediate fact - converted a theoretic, and in itself an open question, into a matter of conscience, the denial of which was equivalent to the high treason of atheism.

Regarding the first two terms which can be translated as ' alienation ' , we have three concepts: (a) estrangement; (b) alienation of property to another; and (c) externalisation. The translators have adopted different solutions to the terminological complexity . For instance, Milligan (1 974) and Benton (1 974) render Entfremdung: estrangement and Entiiusserung: alienation (or externalisation) whereas Easton and Guddat (1 967) and McLellan (1 974) translate Entfremdung: alienation, and Entiiusserung: externalisation.
