Friendship and Society

An Introduction to Augustines Practical Philosophy
  • By Donald X. Burt
Product Description
What can I know? What can I hope for? What should I do? These are three perennial questions of life, and few thinkers have offered such penetrating answers as Augustine. Friendship and Society is a fascinating volume meant for those interested in what one of history's greatest minds had to say about life in an imperfect world.

Bridging expert scholarship and a popular readership, this volume assumes no in-depth knowledge of philosophy or prior acquaintance with Augustine's writings. An introductory reflection on the human predicament is followed by a clear and accurate outline of Augustine's thought on such revelant topics as ethics, politics, society, history, the family, war and peace, crime and punishment, and church and state. Unifying the book is a powerful argument that "friendship" can be the tie that binds us all.
