READ È eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Augustine of HippoI have read this book several times both as part of the Basic Program of Liberal Education at the University of Chicago and most recently as one of the monthly selections of a reading group in which I participate Like all classics it bears rereading and yields new insights each time I read it But it also is unchanging in ways that struck me when I first read it for Augustine s Confessions seem almost modern in the telling with a psychological perspective that brings his emotional growth alive across the centuries From the carnality of his youth to the moment in the Milanese Garden when a spiritual epiphany changes his perspective forever the story is an earnest and sincere exposition of his personal growth You do not have to be a Catholic or even a believer to appreciate the impact of events in the ife of the young Augustine His relations with his mother Monica are among those that still have impact on the modern reader The additional philosophical musings such as his discussion of the nature of time make this even compelling to those who appreciate philosophical contemplation Psychology philosophy and spirituality combine to make this one of the Great books that remind you that true insight into the human condition transcends time and place Due to unknown and mysterious reasons each and every year chiefly on Labour day at my side always celebrated on 1st May and of course a day off I seem to fall under a moral paralysis while suffering a bit of nervous physical inability which converts me into the The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom laziest person ever Fortunately this seems toast only one day and additionally as per my horoscope s indications this is not my worst fault This year wasn t any different than my collected past So while gazing for an hour or two at a blank wall again fortunately I have only one blank wall in my room all the others are veiled by furniture dozing for a few times under a cosy sweet morning sleep suddenly upon waking up I felt snapping into action and jumped on one of the bookcases and decided for the day to be under maybe a bit not so highly appetizing book Obviously an unconscious prejudiceThe choice for the day was this small Shakespeare light book I don t know why upon picking it up from the bookshop I thought that this is all of it I mean it contains All of the Augustine saint s Confessions But it is not Of course there are many texts chopped andeft just with in the parenthesises Reading wise it was very pleasant and smooth transition between the chapters I felt that some things were than reasonable enough to say and write anyone anytime anywhere The areas where ideas were being converted into a heavier block of comments suddenly were not Again some chapters were so short BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) length just 1 3 pages whicheft me with a very unconvincing insight on the treated theme or subject However overall I really had pleasure reading these passionate confessions In some places I even felt envy towards the saint IF only I could say the same for things that are under my umbrella But hopefully the time is not yet Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy lost In some parts of the book I got under this strong impression that I am re reading something that I once read i It was slow it was dense and it was militantly Christian So why is that The Confessions is such an unavoidably fascinating work Augustine appears here as a fully realized person with all the good and the bad that that implies it s as if the book was a conversation with God and a fly on the wall was taking dictation Since God obviously would have known Augustine s transgressions before they even occurred Augustine thus has nothing to hide in this personal narrative or ateast makes it appear that

A Force Of Personality That Appears Throughforce of personality that appears through work that few writer have matched in the centuries that have followed this original Western autobiography The power and beauty of his writing was no doubt aided by his devotion not only to The Bible but to Cicero Plato and especially Virgil It s also an incomparably fascinating window into the culture of the time the Manicheans Astrologers Christians and Pagans are all interesting studies through the eyes of this saint His contributions to philosophy in this text cannot be ignored even today Bertrand Russell not exactly a churchgoer admired his work on time and it s still an enlightening experience to read these thoughts And of course the story of spiritual awakening is an inspiring and beautiful one a story that is not altogether dissimilar to that of the Buddha centuries before Augustine Although especially at the start it can be slow and cold reading The Confessions than justifies its position as one of the most important books ever written I suspect most people today would not imagine that they have much in common with a Christian saint who Caveman Alien’s Riddle (Caveman Aliens, lived over 1500 years ago Remarkably enough however if they read this book I think they d find much to relate to just as I did The Confessions is the famous autobiography of St Augustine of Hippo a North African saint It is in part hisife story but to me it is really his spiritual biography It is in effect a Teaching white South African literature in high school longetter from himself directed towards God explaining his path towards the divine It is the story of how Augustine went from a sinner someone who in his own words had a restless soul and disordered mind into the realm of divine knowledge and awareness It is a familiar story to anyone who has read Ibn Arabi al Ghazali or any other individuals who have counseled taking what is often referred to as the spiritual pathWhat was most notable to me about the book were how normal St Augustine and his thoughts seem by today s standards He did not want to surrender his bad habits and he did not want to be ridiculed for believing something that he d incorrectly assumed was ridiculous He wanted real knowledge and the company of his beloved friends and family He A Wish Your Heart Makes loved his mother and he wanted Augustine's Confessions is one of the most influential and most innovative works of Latiniterature Written in the author's early forties in the Agricultural Development: An International Perspective (Johns Hopkins Studies in Development) last years of the fourth century AD and during his first years as a bishop they reflect on hisife and on the activity of remembering and interpreting a ife Books I IV are conce. .
