  • Topic: Augustine's "Confessions"

  •  7205 PHIL 6210   SEM 101

  • Instruction Mode: In Person
    FOR SPRING 2023: No thinker has done more to shape the Western intellectual tradition than Augustine (354-430 CE), and no book displays Augustine's dynamic vision of reality more compellingly than the Confessions. Its probing and intimate reflections on the meaning of human life, the nature of God and mind, time and eternity, will and world, good and evil, love and sexuality have challenged every generation since Augustine's own. The course will be structured around a close, critically engaged reading of the Confessions (in English translation); special attention will be given to its philosophical and theological ideas, its place in Augustine's oeuvre, and its historical context and significance.
