This title offers a coherent account of St Augustine's educational thought, including coverage of the reception and influence of his work and its relevance today. St Augustine is indisputably a major thinker in education. Ryan Topping's volume offers the most coherent account of St Augustine's educational thought. This work is divided into: intellectual biography; critical exposition of St Augustine's work; the reception and influence of St Augustine's work; and, the relevance of the work today. This title comes from a major international reference series providing comprehensive accounts of the work of seminal educational thinkers from a variety of periods, disciplines and traditions. It is the most ambitious and prestigious such project ever published - a definitive resource for at least a generation. The thinkers include: Aquinas, Aristotle, Bourdieu, Bruner, Dewey, Foucault, Freire, Holt, Kant, Locke, Montessori, Neill, Newman, Owen, Peters, Piaget, Plato, Rousseau, Steiner, Vygotsky, West and Wollstonecraft.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Ryan Topping's book on Augustine is an essential addition to a series on great educational thinkers. He shows convincingly how Augustine defends a Christian liberal education, a unique synthesis of pagan rhetorical techniques and Christian spirituality, whose Christian character is seen in its valuing of truth, its emphasis on love, and its cheerfulness. Topping's analysis of Augustine's influence is realistic, identifying limitations as well as strengths in his educational philosophy. This realism strengthens the application of Augustinian ideas to contemporary debates about the university.'
Vivian Boland, O.P., Director of the Aquinas Institute at Blackfriars Hall, and member of the Theology Faculty of Oxford University, UK
