Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 coverage...no university or college library with serious holding in religious or humanistic studies should be without this book." CHOICE Jan 2002

Book Description

It is hard to overestimate the importance of the work of Augustine of Hippo, 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.

This book, edited by Eleonore Stump and the late Norman Kretzmann, is a very nice collection of Augustinian scholars and their writings on or about different aspects of Augustine's philosophy.
The book consists of articles (or chapters) which deal with Augustine's view on Time and Creation, Faith and Reason, Evil and the Origin of Sin, Predestination, Pelagianism, and Foreknowledge, the Soul, Free Will, Philosophy of Language, Political philosophy and much more. Some of the contributing scholars are: Mary T. Clark (Manhattanville College), Bonnie Kent (Syracuse University), Scott MacDonald (Cornell University), John Rist (University of Toronto), Eleonore Stump (St. Louis University), Roland Teske (Marquette University), etc.
This book is a perfect demonstration of the influence which Augustine and his thinking has had over the last 1600 years or so. In my estimation this is one of the better secondary compilations which covers the thought of Augustine. The chapters are quite detailed regarding each philosophical issue and lead the reader to a greater understanding of what Augustine was espousing. However, the work is not so "scholarly" that the average person (or non-philosopher) would read it and be completely lost. Thus, it is so well written that anyone who has an interest in Augustine can tackle the issues. Moreover, the book covers several theological issues which Augustine had dealt with in his own day. This, I think, adds a nice dimension to the text. I highly recommend this work (as well as "Augustine Through the Ages" which is also available here at Amazon).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains thoughtful analyses of Augustine's biggest hits and provides enough info on some of the less popular writings that you can omit reading them while still learning their main points. I just wish I had discovered this when I was taking the Great Courses series on The Confessions; I could have benefitted from it on several subjects.
