Augustine on Mind and Metaphysics (Part Two)
Our final installment on The Confessions (400 CE), books 10–13.
We continue talking about memory and how it relates to Plato's "recollection," grapple with his take on will (do we pursue something we take to be the good per Plato or do we intentionally pursue evil?), what it means to live as hooked up with God, and the kinds of answers Augustine gives to tricky questions like the origin of the universe and the nature of time.
