Augustine vs. Sartre on the Difference God Makes

Peter Kreeft

March 23, 2023


In lecture 4, Dr. Kreeft details the differences between Augustine, the lover of truth, and Sartre, whose ultimate enemy is truth. We are faced with a stark choice between Augustine’s road to the source of all love, light, and life, and Sartre’s road into the darkness.

In this lecture series, Dr. Peter Kreeft examines key ideas in philosophy by comparing and contrasting two representative philosophers in each episode.

To learn more about these philosophers and the other major philosophers who helped shape the world, check out Dr. Kreeft’s book series, “Socrates’ Children: An Introduction to Philosophy from the 100 Greatest Philosophers.”
