Abstract

Eckhart describes lust as a principle of life in his German Sermon 63. The examples he mentions indicate that he was inspired by his reading of Augustine’s De civitate dei. But while Augustine condemns the Epicurean concept of pleasure emphatically, Eckhart – by contrast – admits that pleasure has an eminent positive value because it is the goal of creation.
