Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Two valuable insights lie at the heart of Once Out of Nature . The first is that Augustine is always concerned with the body and embodiment. The second is that Augustine's valuing of, and serious thought about, the body leads to his dual notion of time as experienced in the body, earthly time and psychic time. Nightingale's lucid exposition is an important contribution to the study of Augustine's thought. This is a clear, compelling, and at times quite moving book." Catherine Conybeare, Bryn Mawr College.

Inhaltsangabe: Once Out of Nature offers an original interpretation of Augustine’s theory of time and embodiment. Andrea Nightingale draws on philosophy, sociology, literary theory, and social history to analyze Augustine’s conception of temporality, eternity, and the human and transhuman condition. In Nightingale’s view, the notion of embodiment illuminates a set of problems much larger than the body itself: it captures the human experience of being an embodied soul dwelling on earth. In Augustine’s writings, humans live both in and out of nature—exiled from Eden and punished by mortality, they are “resident aliens” on earth. While the human body is subject to earthly time, the human mind is governed by what Nightingale calls psychic time. For the human psyche always stretches away from the present moment—where the physical body persists—into memories and expectations. As Nightingale explains, while the body is present in the here and now, the psyche cannot experience self-presence. Thus, for Augustine, the human being dwells in two distinct time zones, in earthly time and in psychic time. The human self, then, is a moving target. Adam, Eve, and the resurrected saints, by contrast, live outside of time and nature: these transhumans dwell in an everlasting present. Nightingale connects Augustine’s views to contemporary debates about transhumans and suggests that Augustine’s thought reflects our own ambivalent relationship with our bodies and the earth. Once Out of Nature offers a compelling invitation to ponder the boundaries of the human.

Buchbeschreibung The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Augustine was the first theologian to write an autobiographical book dealing with the themes of sin and salvation, time and eternity. Once Out of Nature broadly reconsiders his conception of embodiment, a crucial but poorly understood theme of his work. Andrea Nightingale uses embodiment to illuminate a set of problems much larger than the body itself - this notion, she demonstrates, is the key to understanding Augustine s accounts of time and the human place in the earthly world. Augustine offered the first exploration of the subjective experience of time in Western thinking, claiming that the human psyche always stretches away from the present moment - where the physical body persists - into memories of the past and expectations of the future. For Augustine, the embodied psyche dwells in two distinct time zones. Though Augustine s understanding of time and embodiment may sound outmoded, Nightingale connects his views to contemporary debates about trans-humans and suggests that Augustine s thought reflects our own ambivalent relationship with our bodies and the earth. A compelling invitation to ponder the boundaries of the human, Once Out of Nature contributes to conversations involving scholars working in late antiquity, literary critics, philosophers, and ecological thinkers.
