Objects of Love
"My purpose in this year's Stob Lectures is not to explore the expository questions surrounding Augustine's proposal, nor to discuss the merits of realist and idealist political theories. It is, rather, to exploit the understanding that Augustine holds out to us, by reflecting on a range of common moral and social phenomena characteristic of life in late-modern society, and holding them up to the light of his suggestion ." Oliver O'Donovan is Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at the University of Oxford and Canon of Christ Church. His interests lie in the field of Christian ethics, especially Christian political thought, contemporary and historical . A06353a is Lecture only. A06353b is beginning of Q&A A06354 is remaining Q&A.
