Peter Kreeft

May 11, 2023


In lecture 11, Dr. Kreeft highlights the sharp contrast between Confucius and Marx. While the principles of Confucius’ morality were directed to the preservation of natural order and peace, Marx’s most basic values were revolutionary, competitive, and violent.

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