Augustine: On the Trinity Books 8-15 (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a major statement of Augustine's thought, in which he develops his philosophy of mind, On the Trinity had a considerable influence on medieval philosophy, and continues to interest philosophers today. This edition presents it together with a philosophical and historical introduction by Gareth Matthews, and useful notes on further reading.

Book News Annotation:

In De Trinitate, Augustine wrestles with the mystery of the Divine Trinity. The latter half of the treatise also sets forth his philosophy on the human mind. Editor Gareth B. Matthews (U. of Massachusetts, Amherst) compares and contrasts Augustine's work with that of other philosophers and presents an overview of his ideas in the introduction. This is followed by Stephen McKenna's 1961 translation of Books 8-15.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

On the Trinity can be fairly described as the first modern philosophy of mind: it is the first work in philosophy to recognize the 'problem of other minds', and the first to offer the 'argument from analogy' as a response to that problem. This volume presents the philosophical section of the work, and in a historical and philosophical introduction Gareth Matthews places Augustine's arguments in context and assesses their influence on later thinkers.

Synopsis:

A new edition of Augustine??'s influential philosophical and theological treatise.
