This is the 94th contribution to Laterza’s fortunate series of introductions to the life and work of canonical philosophers. It aims to summarise not only the material regarding the Bishop of Hippo, but also, in a concluding chapter, the fortune of Augustine and of Augustinianisms. The principle employed to organise the enormous amount of material is thematic, though chronology is not ignored but clarified by synoptic tables. Thus, Augustine’s opponents are studied for what they can tell us about his works, which are very often occasional, and the main themes are evoked in the very different texts (dialogues, treatises, letters, sermons and disputations): language and hermeneutics, evil and freedom, time and measure, the City of God and the city of man.

Abstract

This is the 94th contribution to Laterza’s fortunate series of introductions to the life and work of canonical philosophers. It aims to summarise not only the material regarding the Bishop of Hippo, but also, in a concluding chapter, the fortune of Augustine and of Augustinianisms. The principle employed to organise the enormous amount of material is thematic, though chronology is not ignored but clarified by synoptic tables. Thus, Augustine’s opponents are studied for what they can tell us about his works, which are very often occasional, and the main themes are evoked in the very different texts (dialogues, treatises, letters, sermons and disputations): language and hermeneutics, evil and freedom, time and measure, the City of God and the city of man.
