Augustine on Being Good (Part Two)
More on The Confessions, books 1–9. He tells us to love the world, but only insofar as you're really loving the creator, so don't get too carried away. What are the logical and not-so-logical-but-certainly-predictable implications of this kind of view? Misogyny? Persecution of heretics? We try to relate his comments on the will back to our discussion with Eva Brann and also, what's the deal with all the Bible quotes?
