In this double-lecture, Dr. Fedoryka analyzes and challenges certain false ideas about the human person, and then elaborates the Christian vision of the person's creation in love and fulfillment in relation to God and other persons.

Part 1: "He who created you without you..."

The "pessimistic existentialists" such as Nietzsche and Sartre believe human existence to have no meaningful origin, and thus to be absurd. The Christian conviction, by contrast, is that creation springs from the hand of a loving creator. Dr. Fedoryka reflects philosophically on this love-origin of the human person, and then shows the dramatic implications of this beginning in love for the human person's vocation and genuine fulfillment.
