In 2000 words explain

How each thinker Augustine and Sartre makes the case for their respective positions
regarding the meaning of the human being.

Also what type of life provides the greatest significance?

Show Augustine (in Confessions) and Sartre (in Existentialism is a Humanism) arguments.

Which argument offers a more accurate account of the meaning of human existence?

– In his Confessions, Augustine attempts to show that by nature human beings are seeking some ultimate form of happiness and that the spiritual life, a life lived in humble obedience to God, is the only type of life that genuinely fulfills human desire for meaning and happiness.  

-Sartre challenges this idea and argues that a rejection of God’s existence offers a life of greater moral responsibility.
