E8: Splendid Vices and Happiness in Hope (Book 5)

The Great Courses Presents: Books That Matter - The City of God | Lectures

In this lecture, you'll reach the climax of Augustine's argument toward civic-minded Romans, which answers the question of how best to pursue happiness while also being a good citizen. The answer takes you through a dazzling discussion of fate versus free will, the nature of divine providence, the errors of glory-seeking, and the tragic nature of the world.
