The seven degrees of activity of the human soul in Saint Augustine’s "de Quantitate Animae"

Trans/Form/Ação 37 (3):179-200 (2014)

Abstract
A alma é, sem dúvida, um dos problemas que mais interessou a Santo Agostinho; ele a define como uma substância partícipe da razão adequada ao governo de um corpo. A alma não tem quantidade corporal, contudo, é uma coisa grande. Este estudo pretende refletir sobre os sete graus de atividade da alma, os quais o autor apresenta na sua obra De quantitate animae. São eles: a animação, a sensação, a arte, a virtude, a tranquilidade, o ingresso e a contemplação. The soul is undoubtedly one of the problems that most interested St. Augustine.
