[Autom. eng. transl.] Among the ancient thinkers Augustine is undoubtedly the most present in the contemporary philosophical and theological debate. In fact, even non-believing and distant authors from any religious dimension do not hesitate to recognize in the work of the Bishop of Hippo an essential and indispensable point of reference for a non-ideological reflection on man and his existential vicissitude. In truth, such speculative fruitfulness is found in every great philosopher and in every great theologian; nevertheless in Augustine it assumes a power so vital and in a certain sense always new that it is able to read and question the many problems of current events. Why does the Bishop of Hippo's thought continue to fascinate us, question us and awaken us? This volume intends to contribute to the definition of the answer to this question. To do this, it will follow two paths, the philosophical and the theological, focusing essentially on two themes, that of the status of the subject and that of the nature of experience with particular reference to the theme of confession.
