In this course we pursue a careful study of the most influential figure of Medieval Philosophy: Augustine (354-430). We pursue a close reading of Augustines Confessions, which provides meditations on a large number of topics, including God, the problem of evil, the meaning of life, free will, sexuality, the human mind, the afterlife, and the nature of time.
