Herein, the author explores new insights into one of antiquity's most important philosophers. He discusses topics that include: skepticism, language acquisition, mind-body dualism, philosophical dream problems, time and creation, faith and reason, foreknowledge and free will, and Augustine's standing as a 'Socratic philosopher'.
Sarah Byers, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
“Matthews is one of the world’s leading authorities– perhaps the leading authority – on Augustinethe philosopher. In this book, he provides a series of vignettes ofAugustine in philosophical action: arguing against the skeptics,worrying about the nature of time, trying to dissipate the tensionsbetween foreknowledge and free will, and trying to figure out whatcounts as a lie. There is no one better equipped to spot theseissues and subject them to sensitive, sympathetic, yet criticalanalysis.”
William Mann, University of Vermont
“Matthews’s beautifully clear voice, penetratingeye, and delicate touch bring Augustine’s puzzles andarguments vividly to life for twenty-first-century readers. Whilethere is no better general introduction to Augustine’sphilosophical ideas, Matthews’s Augustine holdstreasures for scholars and specialists as well.”
Scott MacDonald, Cornell University.
"Matthews style throughout the book is very easy to read. Heincludes many lengthy quotations whether this be Augustine, Hume,or Zeno... This is a very good book. It will prove useful for allgraduate and post-graduate students, as well as any armchairphilosopher and theologian!"
