I bought this little book written by Carlo Chiurco.
It is for me a good introduction to a fantastic man who had very appealing goals and thoughts. Among others his philosophy that reason, philosophy,s cience and faith can live together in harmony. This is something i have tried to achieve during these last 4 years ending up with my pantheistic Genesis in www.kinberg.net/wordpress/stellan/the-pantheistic-genesis/
His life is described in “the confessions” available in pdf and epub format on archive.org/details/confessionsofsta00augu
The Italian film about him is based upon the confessions.
- Main thoughts
He said many things. But I like most of all these
- His looking for truth
- His view about God
- Reason and faith can live together in harmony
- The human soul is the most important trace of God.
- understand to believe
- believe to understand
The thougths of St Augustin are very inspiring. I continue to read the book above as he helps me in my own search of God, the Creation, among others the human being and myself.
