Saint Augustine's Philosophy of Beauty Hardcover – January 1, by Emmanuel : Emmanuel Chapman. The book shifts emphasis away from Augustine's early and most theoretical treatises to his mature reflections as a bishop and pastor on how God communicates with fallen man.

Using his theory of language as a paradigm, it shows how divine beauty, revealed in creation and history, serves to inspire fallen man's faith, hope, and most especially his love – thereby reforming him and restoring the form or beauty.

Philosophy of Kant, The Kemp, John “This brief and lucid synopsis of Kant’s critical philosophy is written in the hope that it will make reading of Kant ‘a little easier’ – a hope which is not disappointed. The book expounds the principal theses of Kant’s theoretical and practical philosophy and of his philosophy of beauty and purpose.

Augustine read the book at age eighteen, in the course of his studies to become a skilled and stylish orator. But this book, which also argues that the pursuit of truth through philosophy is the route to a happy life, moved him deeply: for the first time, he "longed for the immortality of wisdom with an incredible ardor in my heart.".

Thus, the last four Books of the Confessions, in their deep vindication of Christianity, focus primarily on details of the world's existence in God rather than Augustine's own ascent to God.

Book X pursues this aim through an analysis of memory, which poses truly mystical problems for Augustine. This page contains a list of the best books on or by St. Augustine.

Augustine traces his growing disenchantment with the Manichean conceptions of God and evil and the dawning understanding of God's incorruptibility.
