  3. Charles T. Mathewes (2001). Original Sin and the Hermeneutics of Charity: A Response to Gilbert Meilaender. Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (1):35 - 42.
    Looking for a way to read the classic texts of Christian antiquity without treating them either as if they were written yesterday or as if they were archaeological artefacts, the author endorses Meilaender's endeavor to develop the insights of Augustine in the modern context. He nevertheless suggests that a different way of drawing the analogy between sex and eating would better capture Augustine's distinctive way of joining theology and ethics and would enable a more vigorous defense of Augustine against modern (...)

  4. Charles T. Mathewes (2001). Evil and the Augustinian Tradition. Cambridge University Press.
    Recent scholarship has focused attention on the difficulties that evil, suffering, and tragic conflict present to religious belief and moral life. Thinkers have drawn upon many important historical figures, with one significant exception - Augustine. At the same time, there has been a renaissance of work on Augustine, but little discussion of either his work on evil or his influence on contemporary thought. This book fills these gaps. It explores the 'family biography' of the Augustinian tradition by looking at Augustine's (...)

  6. Charles T. Mathewes (2000). Agency, Nature, Transcendence, and Moralism: A Review of Recent Work in Moral Psychology. [REVIEW] Journal of Religious Ethics 28 (2):297 - 328.
    Recent work in moral and philosophical psychology provides valuable resources for religious ethicists, and this review examines contributions by Julia Annas, Annette Baier, John Bowlin, John McDowell, and William Wainwright. This literature raises important questions about the character of human moral being as naturalistic, about whether an explicitly supernatural morality can be other than inevitably "moralistic," and about how that might be so. Nonetheless, religious ethicists should appropriate it only with care, particularly in its emphasis on naturalism, and the partiality (...)

  8. Charles T. Mathewes (1999). Augustinian Anthropology: Interior Intimo Meo. Journal of Religious Ethics 27 (2):195 - 221.
    Our appreciation and appropriation of Augustine's thought is hindered by assumptions which serious engagement with his thought makes both visible and dubious. His account of the dynamics of human knowing seems, at first glance, a jumble of confusions, but, once better understood, it helps transform both the terms and the framework of our epistemology. His account of human agency seems similarly confused, but also works, once rightly understood, to transform our vision of what agency is. Further-more, Augustine's different anthropological and (...)
