This paper is divided into four parts. The first is concerned with the general relationship between philosophy and theology. The second with Levinas's interpretation of the relationship between theology and philosophy. The third deals with this interpretation and how it might be contrasted with other philosophical uses of the word God most notably that of Descartes and Kant. The final section takes the form of a Nietzschean response to Levinas's phenomenological defence of religion. This response is directed at the place of the subject in religious language. It is the latter that is the true object of Nietzsche's atheism, and not the question ot God's existence.
