    The Fruit of Confessing Lips.Michael P. Foley - 2019 - Augustinianum 59 (2):425-452.
    In an effort to identify the genre of the Confessions, this essay: 1) explains the patristic notion of confession and how Augustine expands upon this already-rich concept to include that of sacrifice; 2) offers an overview of Augustine’s pervasive sacrificial imagery in the Confessions, especially with respect to himself, Monica, Alypius, and the philosophi; and 3) teases out the implications of this imagery and how Augustine’s theology of sacrifice relates to the genre of his Confessions. We conclude the Confessions is (...)

Watson brings together some of the nation's most eminent thinkers on higher education to reflect on the nature and purposes of the American university today. Their mordant reflections paint a picture of the American university in crisis. This book is essential reading for thoughtful citizens, scholars, and educational policymakers.

  4. Agustín, Aristóteles y las 'Confesiones'.Michael P. Foley - 2009 - Augustinus 54 (212):185-197.
    La manera en que Agustín engrana en las 'Confesiones' el pensamiento de Aristóteles revela mucho acerca de la forma en la que fue capaz de beneficiarse de fuentes no platónicas. El objeto del presente artículo es analizar ese engranaje tan a fondo como sea posible, mediante un esfuerzo por comprender mejor la relación de Agustín con las vetas no platónicas de la filosofía clásica.

  6. Comedy, Tragedy, and Saint Thomas More.Michael P. Foley - 2009 - Moreana 46 (1):143-156.
    The twentieth-century political philosopher Leo Strauss uses a quotation from Thomas More to suggest that Christianity is akin to tragedy while philosophy is closer to comedy. This article responds to Strauss’s contention by examining the implications of characterizing philosophy or biblical religion as either comic or tragic; it then analyzes Thomas More’s understanding of Christianity in order to see whether More shares Strauss’s opinion. The paper concludes that he does not: Thomas More sees Christian life and thought as essentially “comic” (...)

  7. Ever Ancient, Ever New: Ruminations on the City, the Soul, and the Church.Michael P. Foley (ed.) - 2007 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Almost single-handedly, Ernest L. Fortin resuscitated the study of political philosophy for Catholic theology. Fortin's interests were vast: the Church Fathers, Dante and Aquinas, modern rights, ecumenism. All of these are in Ever Ancient Ever New, the fourth and final volume of Fortin's collected essays. Edited by Michael Foley, the volume contains articles never before published and is for anyone wishing to continue their education from Ernest Fortin or to begin learning from him for the first time.

  9. Paradoxes of Pain: The Strategic Appropriation by Thomas More of Pico Della Mirandola’s Spiritual Works.Michael P. Foley - 2010 - Moreana 47 (1-2):9-22.
    Thomas More’s translations of the spiritual works of Pico della Mirandola are not simple transpositions from Latin to English; rather, More takes several liberties with the text. This essay argues that the most significant change that More makes to Pico’s content is the amplification of the theme of pleasure and pain. This amplification, in turn, is a part of More’s broader strategy of reaching a wider audience and with a greater impact.

    Cicerón, Agustín y las raíces filosóficas de los diálogos de Casiciaco.Michael P. Foley - 2009 - Augustinus 54 (214):315-344.
    Para entender completamente los diálogos de Casiciaco de san Agustín, es preciso comprender cómo se relacionan con las obras filosóficas de Marco Tulio Cicerón. En concreto, "Contra Academicos" de Agustín es una respuesta a "Academica" de Cicerón. "De beata uita" es una respuesta a los ciceronianos "De finibus" y "Tusculanae disputationes". Su "De ordine" es una respuesta a la trilogía de Cicerón sobre la providencia: "De natura deorum", "De diuinatione" y "De fato". Reconocer la conexión entre estas obras arroja luz (...)

    Casiciaco y el denominado "giro al sujeto".Michael P. Foley - 2011 - Augustinus 56 (220):97-106.
    El artículo aborda los llamados "Diálogos de Casiciaco" de Agustín, estableciendo a grandes rasgos las características básicas de la comprensión agustiniana del sujeto cognoscente y del subsiguiente "giro" que a él hace Agustín, respondiendo a cuatro preguntas básicas: qué es para Agustín la vuelta al sujeto, cuáles son sus características y corolarios, qué implica esto y qué produce.

    The Quarrel Between Poetry and Philosophy in the Early Dialogues of St. Augustine.Michael P. Foley - 2015 - Philosophy and Literature 39 (1):15-31.
    After he was delivered from the necessity of making provision for the flesh in its concupiscence and after tendering his resignation as a professor of rhetoric, St. Augustine was, in the autumn of 386 a.d., eager to explore his newfound Christian faith and prepare for his reception into the Catholic Church. His conversion, momentous though it was, did not so much entail a repudiation of all that he had learned and studied as it did a transformation of what had brought (...)

    La otra vida feliz: dimensión política de los Diálogos de Casiciaco de san Agustín.Michael P. Foley - 2008 - Augustinus 53 (208):81-98.
    Los diálogos de Casiciaco tienen una dimensión política importante. Sin embargo, los puntos centrales de los diálogos son esencialmente no políticos, y algunas de las afirmaciones pueden parecer hostiles a la vida cívica y a cualquier reflexión sobre cuál es el mejor ordenamiento político. Este artículo estudia cómo estas aparentes incoherencias no son signos de una actitud contradictoria, sino que reflejan una estrategia triple, utilizada por Agustín para forjar la correcta actitud ante la vida política, una estrategia que incluye (1) (...)
