Item 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 relevant 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
fabulous intro to St. Augustine's ethics and politics  Nov 6, 2000
This book offers a path into the riches of Augustine's ethics and politics. Burt situates Augustine's views in the larger context of Augustine's vision of the Triune God's work in history of creating a society of friends. A very helpful and enjoyable work.
