This interpretation and commentary of the first book of Augustine's earliest extant work Contra Academicos establishes for the first time a close relationship between the topicalisation of various methods for imparting knowledge in the first book of the dialogue (reading, conversation, divination) and the argument with the sceptics. The disputed role of Cicero's protreptic dialogue Hortensius as a reference text is clarified. The commentary furnishes detailed analyses of the argumentative structure and a wealth of information on philological, historical and philosophical issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Ein brilliantes Buch, das nicht nur Philologen, Philosophiekritiker und Theologen mit grossem Gewinn und Genuss lesen werden."
Gernot Krapinger in: Museum Helveticum 62/2005

"Die jedem Textabschnitt vorangestellte Einleitung ist sehr inhaltsreich und zutreffend und hilft dem Leser wirklich, sich innerhalb von Text und Kontext Augustins zu orientieren. Hoffentlich folgen diesem Beispiel auch Kommentare der anderen Cassiciacum-Dialoge Augustins!"
Martin Claes in: Theologische Literaturzeitung 9/2005

"Everyone engaged in the study of Augustine's philosophy of religion and any adjacent field will greatly benefit from the use of the book."
Josef L ssl in: Religious Studies 42/2005
