Scientia y sapientia en De Trinitate XII: San Agustín y las formas de la racionalidad

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The paper offers a revision of the distinction between scientia and sapientia as developed in Book XII of De Trinitate. It reviews the interpretations that reduce said scientia to natural and non practical knowledge, so as to then discuss the Augustian distinction in the broadest context of the ancient discussions on practical and theoretical knowledge, as well as the role of this distinction in the context of such work by St. Augustine.
