Example text

In Civ. 16, Augustine contrasts the axiology of the ordo naturae—which I discuss here—with a commercial-libidinal modus aestimationis. He also characterizes this as a difference between axiology as determined by the rerum gradibus, and axiology as determined by libidinal necessitas. According to the ordo naturae, a jewel is inferior to a slavegirl; but according to the modus aestimationis, the slave-girl is inferior to the jewel. Despite the innate dignitas of the slave-girl, the jewel takes a higher price in Roman markets.

And what is animus? 44 Localizing time in anima, and identifying time with a dilation of animus, thus remain—within the limits of Augustine’s time-investigation—radically rerum venturarum fit contuitus, cum venerint, idemque contuitus fit memoria, cum praeterierint). 37 Aug. Conf. 26: praesens de praeteritis memoria, praesens de praesentibus contuitus, praesens de futuris expectatio. ” 39 Aug. Conf. 26: sunt enim haec in anima tria quaedam et alibi ea non video. 40 Aug.
