Perhaps the first thing to strike one, in reading Cornelio Fabro's account of the question of God, is his passion for this topic, evident throughout this admirable translation of a work first published over sixty years ago (Dio: Introduzione al problema teologico ). to Fabro, the question of God haunts every human life and "every age of human history." even atheists witness "to the God whose presence they cannot tolerate" by "the obstinacy that consumes them and the insolence that makes them implacable persecutors" (1). if Fabro's comment described the atheists of 1953, it is all the more apt for the "new Atheism" of our time.
Cornelio Fabro (1911 – 1995) is among the most important philosophers of the 20th century because of his studies of the metaphysics of St. Thomas Aquinas and for his vast knowledge of modern philosophy and classical Christian realism from the perspective of Kierkegaard's metaphysical existentialism.
