Book VII—Neo-Platonism and Truth

Lecture no. 13 from the course: St. Augustine's Confessions

 Book VII—Neo-Platonism and Truth

Taught by Professor William R. Cook and 1 others | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Augustine becomes convinced of Christianity's truth through an amazing paradox: by reading pagan philosophers. Because he makes the case for the necessity of pagan learning, this book is an important chapter in the history of Christianity and in Western intellectual history.
