Lord God of Truth & Concerning the Teacher $7.95

Gordon H. Clark and Aurelius Augustine
Trade paperback, 110 pages, 1994

In Lord God of Truth, Dr. Clark examines four major problems in the philosophy of Empiricism: sensation, causality, imagination, and induction. He concludes that Empiricism fails to solve all four problems, but that Biblical Christianity either avoids or can solve the problems that stymie the empiricists. Because it is closely related to Clark's argument, we have included the dialogue De Magistro "Concerning the Teacher" penned by Augustine 16 centuries ago, in which Augustine discusses the source of learning.
