    Editorial Reviews

    "...we are all indebted to Matthews for continuing to draw attention to Augustine's philosophical range and relevance."
    Sarah Byers, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

    “Matthews is one of the world’s leading authorities – perhaps the leading authority – on Augustine the philosopher. In this book, he provides a series of vignettes of Augustine in philosophical action: arguing against the skeptics, worrying about the nature of time, trying to dissipate the tensions between foreknowledge and free will, and trying to figure out what counts as a lie. There is no one better equipped to spot these issues and subject them to sensitive, sympathetic, yet critical analysis.”
    William Mann, University of Vermont


    “Matthews’s beautifully clear voice, penetrating eye, and delicate touch bring Augustine’s puzzles and arguments vividly to life for twenty-first-century readers. While there is no better general introduction to Augustine’s philosophical ideas, Matthews’s Augustine holds treasures for scholars and specialists as well.”
    Scott MacDonald, Cornell University.

    "Matthews style throughout the book is very easy to read. He includes many lengthy quotations whether this be Augustine, Hume, or Zeno... This is a very good book. It will prove useful for all graduate and post-graduate students, as well as any armchair philosopher and theologian!"
