Book X—Augustine on Memory

Lecture no. 20 from the course: St. Augustine's Confessions

 Book X—Augustine on Memory

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

Having just finished an account of his past in the first nine books, Augustine's discussion of memory is a logical next step. Augustine sees memory as a mystery and explores some of its paradoxes: for example, that we are in some ways able to remember forgetfulness. He uses this discussion as part of a larger quest for God.
