About the Authors
  • It is hard to overestimate the importance of the work of Augustine of Hippo and its influence, both in his own period and in the subsequent history of Western philosophy. Many of his views, including his theory of the just war, his account of time and eternity, his attempted resolution of the problem of evil, and his approach to the relation of faith and reason, have continued to be influential up to the present. In this volume of specially-commissioned essays, sixteen scholars provide a wide-ranging and stimulating contribution to our understanding of Augustine.

    • Augustine is a figure of enormous importance in medieval philosophy and subsequently
    • Essays are very clearly and accessibly written
    • Will be of interest to students of theology as well as philosophy

    "This book, which should be in every scholarly library, can easily be used for graduate courses on Augustine's thought." Religious Studies Review

    "Augustine's thought is so rich and the scholarship on it is so diverse."...she and her late coeditor have assembled a volume impressive not only for the high quality of its 18 essays by 16 scholars (15 of whom teach at North American and British universities and colleges, and one, at the Univ. of Helsinki), but also for its range of university or college library with serious holding in religious or humanistic studies should be without this book." CHOICE Jan 2002
