St Augustine

    By

    After setting Augustine's thought firmly within the context of his life and times, Ryan Topping examines in turn the causes of education the purposes, pedagogy, curriculum, and limits of learning as Augustine understood them. Augustine's towering influence over Medieval and Renaissance theorists - from Hugh of St Victor, to Aquinas, to Erasmus - is traced. The book concludes by drawing Augustine into dialogue with contemporary philosophers, exploring the influence of his meditations on higher education and suggesting how his ideas can reinvigorate for our generation the project of liberal learning.
