Augustine says Plato was the first one to recognize forms/ideas which are the model of creation. Plato believed the form was archetypes of god’s mind. Augustine got that wrong; he did not know Plato very well. Philosophy 11/09/11 Christian philosophy. Purely punitive justice makes sense- revenge. Damnation consists of a denial of God, where there are no other things to distract you. Augustine… In the western Mediterranean… Augustine (?) sought understanding amongst the most fashionable people in his time- the manequians(?). Even if nothing holds true, I can be certain that I am having experiences. Can also know all the truths of math and logic. Philosophy 11/14/11 Augustine… concludes there are other minds like ours and that time does not exist. Soliloquies are dialogues that have to do with the soul. Can’t be completely devoid of belief. You have to be careful about judging the shape and size of objects from a distance… When you are dreaming, you may be confused as to whether you are awake, but when you are awake you are not confused as to whether you are dreaming. Source of truth. Confronted issues such as on divine knowledge, freedom, Journey going away from God, that went nowhere. Philosophy 11/28/11 Ontological argument. What is apriori (nature of the thing) to what is aposteriori (after the existence of the thing, the effects of something) Real in the sense that the object has some grounds in reality. Descartes agrees with the view that existence is a property within the thing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
