Review quote

The authors of these essays ask many different questions about Augustine and his influence, and bring a large diversity of interests and expertise to their task. Thus the collection shows that Augustine's philosophy remains an influence and a provocation in a wide variet of settings today. Augustine and Philosophy is a welcome addition to this highly regarded series. Key topics in Augustine's philosophy and his influential legacy are examined with rigor and sensitivity by leading scholars. Without advocating a settled agenda, the various essays cut across disciplinary boundaries and constitute a needed corrective to the relative neglect of Augustine in contemporary philosophical circles. -- Eric Gregory, Princeton Universityshow more
