Augustine and the Will with Han-Luen Kantzer Komline

45m | Feb 28, 2024

Jordan talks with Han-Luen about Augustine and the will. They cover topics like: What is the will? Did Augustine invent our concept of the will? Why has Augustine's thought on the will been such a difficult topic? How much does his own maturation and development make it more difficult? Does Augustine's doctrine of providence fit with his view of free will? How do later thinkers, particularly Thomas and the Reformers, modify/adapt Augustine's approach to the will? How does baptism affect the will in Augustine’s thought? What implications does that have for those who reject his views on baptism? How much does Augustine's anthropology more generally influence his concept of the will? Is he a platonic dualist? Does that impact his thought? And more!
