Front Cover
Wadsworth/Thomson Learning, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 83 pages
This brief text assists students in understanding Augustine's philosophy and thinking so they can more fully engage in useful, intelligent class dialogue and improve their understanding of course content. Part of the Wadsworth Notes Series, (which will eventually consist of approximately 100 titles, each focusing on a single "thinker" from ancient times to the present), ON AUGUSTINE is written by a philosopher deeply versed in the philosophy of this key thinker. Like other books in the series, this concise book offers sufficient insight into the thinking of a notable philosopher, better enabling students to engage in reading and to discuss the material in class and on paper.

About the author (2001)

Sharon Kaye is a professor of philosophy at John Carroll University in Ohio. She earned her PhD from the University of Toronto and is a specialist in medieval philosophy.

For the past several years, Sharon M. Kaye, Ph.D., and Paul Thomson, Ph.D., taught philosophy to high school students through the Carroll-Cleveland Philosopher's Program, which won the 2006 American Philosophical Association Award for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs. They continue to promote the teaching of philosophy to secondary students. Philosophy, the authors believe, allows students to formulate intelligent opinions on major life issues; therefore, their book asks students to make reasoned, informed decisions about some of life's greatest debates. Kaye currently serves as an associate professor of philosophy at John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH. Thomson currently serves as Philosopher-in-Residence at Columbia Secondary School, a magnet school in New York City, where he coordinates the school's philosophy courses.
