Saint Augustine of Hippo’s Confessions (published in 397 A.D.) is the author’s intellectual autobiography. So powerfully was it written that it ended the age of Hellenistic Philosophy, and founded the successor age, now called Medieval Philosophy. Our main goal in this course will be to read and discuss all thirteen chapters of the Confessions. In addition, when possible, we will look at some of the ancient philosophies that influenced Augustine and later philosophies he inspired.
Note: This course is bilingual, however, the language of instruction will be English.
