The Space of Time: A Sensualist Interpretation of Time in Augustine, Confessions X to XII

English | 2014 | 374 Pages | ISBN: 9004266860 | PDF | 1.8 MB

From Robert Grosseteste to Jean-Fran?ois Lyotard, Augustine's suggestion that time is a "dilation of the soul" (distentio animi) has been taken up as a seminal and controversial time-concept, yet in The Space of Time, David van Dusen argues that this 'dilation' has been fundamentally misinterpreted.
Time in Confessions XI is a dilation of the senses-in beasts, as in humans. And Augustine's time-concept in Confessions XI is not Platonic-but in schematic terms, Epicurean.
Identifying new influences on the Confessions-from Aristoxenus to Lucretius-while keeping Augustine's phenomenological interpreters in view, The Space of Time is a path-breaking work on Confessions X to XII and a ranging contribution to the history of the concept of time.
