PL 4410 - The Philosophy of St. Augustine

This course will study the life and writings of St. Augustine of Hippo, and his vast contributions to the philosophical understanding of human existence. St. Augustine was a prolific thinker and writer with topics covering the relationship between faith and reason, free will, the soul, immortality, the existence and nature of God, knowledge, truth and wisdom. In particular, this course will explore the neo-platonic influence on St. Augustine’s philosophical views, his own development of an authentic Christian philosophy, and his impact on subsequent philosophy—especially medieval scholasticism.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
