    In Socrates Meets Sartre, Kreeft takes the reader through the world of existentialist philosophy, posing questions that challenge Sartre’s existentialist concepts. Based on a fictional dialogue between Socrates and Sartre that takes place in the afterlife, this profound and witty book makes an entertaining and informative exploration of modern philosophy. The combination of the two, though, makes for a formidable thinker, one it would take a figure such as the Father of Philosophy, the relentless Socrates, to confront. Confront he does, in Peter Kreeft's next installment of the popular Socrates Meets series. Set in the afterlife, the conversation between the two great minds lays out the key issues.

    One of the big highlights of last weekend’s Defending the Faith Conference was meeting Dr. Peter Kreeft. I got to share many conversations with the wise, witty, and wondrous philosopher. We discussed everything from C.S. Lewis and surfing, to atheists, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jewish mystics, and of course books. While discussing our current reads, I mentioned Peter Kreeft’s Recommended. Two books that should be read together are The Communist Manifesto and Socrates Meets Marx and they will be if you read the latter. In Socrates Meets Marx, Marx wakes up in Purgatory only to find Socrates there to question him and make him see himself as he really is/5.

    The setting for all the books in Peter Kreeft’s Socrates Meets _____ series is Purgatory, where Socrates engages a famous philosopher in dialogue about one of the latter’s best-known books. Inspired by both Plato’s dialogues and Dante’s Divine Comedy, this setting gives Kreeft the opportunity to unpack—and even unwind—a philosopher /5(8).
