Spring 2015 not offered
This course will focus on Augustine's CONFESSIONS, which is not only one of the first autobiographies, it is also a strong religious statement, as well as a major philosophical work. This course will complement the other offerings in intellectual history by giving students a chance to work in great detail on one of the masterpieces of European thought before the Renaissance. This rigorous study of Augustine's CONFESSIONS will give students many insights--to give one example, an understanding of how academic work has evolved over the centuries.
