The reflections that follow express that we are inserted and that was described by Michel Foucault as materialism of the incorporeal. We can say that this historical a priori, as an event, crosses our bodies and marks our relations with things and with the institutions in which we are inserted. To think a priori historically is to recognize that there is no longer room for heteronomous imposition and the resulting universalisms that prevent the autonomy of thinking. Contemporary thinking seems increasingly suspicious of definitive solutions and totalizing proposals. After the Second World War and the advent of the Holocaust, we saw resistance to the speeches and practices that tend to disregard minority becoming. May 68 strengthened these resistances by proposing a reformulation of social structures and their pyramidal models, be they right or left, socio-labor or academic-cultural. This book has the merit of giving visibility to issues that cannot be disregarded by those who take Jesus' evangelical proposal seriously, so that there will be, on the part of Christianity, a return to Christianity and its mechanisms of domination, subjection and alienation, but assert your vocation for the integral emancipation of the human condition. The proposal of the present work is, therefore, from classical atheism as the new atheisms, seeing them as a form of moral purifier of Christianity, as well as establishing the bases of an inherent link between knowledge and life, truth and existence, dialoguing great authors such as Soren Kierkgaard, Martin Heidegger, Jaques Maritain, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and Viktor Frankl, pointing to possible theological projects that assimilate criticism.
