Nietzschean thought has, for obvious reasons, rarely been engaged with by Christian theology. Nietzsche explicitly offers his theory of values as the precise antithesis of that of Christianity, moreover Nietzschean anthropology and epistemology, marked by an ontology of violence and a perspectival semiotics respectively, provides significantly less common ground with Christian theology than those characteristic of the modernity Nietzsche so vehemently opposes. This dissertation however attempts to outline a theological response to Nietzschean thought in a manner which both incorporates Nietzschean notions of self and sign and retains its identity as a distinctly Christian theology.
