Augustine (Thought-Criticism) (04).




(4) The Personality


(1) Augustine was motivated by a sincere striving to bare his innermost depths.

(2) And yet we do not see the face of a man whose whole self is revealed.

(3) From one point of view, one may say:

1) He is inwardly chaotic, and consequently he desires absolute authority;

2) he has a tendency toward nihilism, and consequently he requires an absolute guarantee;

3) he is without strong attachments in the world (friends, a woman), and consequently he strives for God without a world.

(4) Such a psychology of contradictions may be illuminating on one plane, but it does not attain to the earnestness of Augustinian thinking.
