Product Description

•••••

In praise of Augustine, Herbert A. Deane writes, “Genius he had in full measure … he is the master of the phrase or the sentence that embodies a penetrating insight, a flash of lightning that illuminates the entire sky.” To provide the student with a glimpse of that genius and a synthesis of Augustine’s views on man and society, the author presents the most important passages from Augustine’s entire body of work in which human nature, the social order, and the nature and function of the state are discussed. Marshaling this primary material, he masterfully weaves the connections between Augustine’s social and political ideas and the general framework of his thought. A new foreword by Richard A. Munkelt makes a substantial contribution in critiquing Deane’s assimilation of certain aspects of Augustine’s thought to modern-day liberalism.
