Article title

Mądrość konieczną korektą ludzkiej wiedzy i źródłem szczęścia według św. Augustyna


Title variants

The wisdom as a necessary correction of human’s knowledge and a source of felicity according to Saint Augustine

Languages of publication



Every man wants to be happy and is striving for felicity. According to Augustinus, it is perceived by those who learn the truth. However, only the one is happy, who is not suffering from any shortage, e.g. is not making any mistake in learning. Such learning as well as wisdom, characteristic for happy people, is not comming from learning things or phenomena, since they cannot be learned infallibly. Philosophy, liable to many mistakes, does not guarrantee learning the whole truth. The truth without any failing is only God and only He can give a man felicity. This truth, available to a man with a clear heart, e.g. described in the perspective of faith and morality, is living in his interior. Felicity and wisdom is achived by the man, who learns the truth in his soul.
