Augustinus als leraar van moderne filosofen

This article discusses the significance of Augustine for several contemporary philosophers. Attention is paid to Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, Jean-François Lyotard, and Jacques Derrida. These philosophers recognize Augustine's existential and emotive style of questioning and searching, but reject his Platonism, his thinking from eternity and his explicit Christian orientation. Two other thinkers, Jean-Louis Chrétien and Jean-Luc Marion, show a greater affinity with Augustine's most important concerns. So he turns out to be a teacher for present day philosophy.
