The Immanent Frame reviews Stefanos Geroulanos's An Atheism that Is Not Humanist Emerges in French Thought.
This antihumanist turn can be a turn away from religion. Indeed, in the customary story of philosophical antihumanism—I think of the compact and powerful narrative of Marx, Nietzsche, and Heidegger’s antihumanism near the opening of Reiner Schürmann’s Heidegger on Being and Acting—antihumanism is part and parcel of a broader attack on foundational discourses, including theology. The potential of a phrase such as “antihumanist atheist,” then, is that it could serve as a category that could offer arguments against the foundationalist narratives of religious authorities as well as of those who describe human animals in essentially computational terms.
Arguably, that's what the anti-arche Heraclitus said.
