Recitation, Wednesday, September 31, 2009 Augustine If God’s perfect, how can there be evil in me? Christ is the mediator of body and mind because he is both spirit ( of God) and body. At what point in his religious experience does he consider himself converted to monism? Spiritual unification with God. This makes it monism, but there are still perfect boundaries between body and mind, which makes it dualistic. It is looking for a higher spiritual unification with God. Monism for Augustine: purely unified spirit w/ God, still works with body/mind. When he is thinking about his conversion experience and wanted to achieve that state of existence in which he could unite his spirit with God. In this way Christ is the way to unite the spirit to God. Christ is the one who has achieved this spiritual union, unlike humans. Alcoholics Anonymous Being an alcoholic there is a constant contest between the drinker and the drink. Some alcoholics claim it is not he mind that is addicted, but rather the body that is addicted. The alcoholic’s sense of self is directly related to the alcohol.
