Resumen

SILVA, Maurizio Filippo Di. IL CONCETTO AGOSTINIANO DI FUTURO: "CONFESSIONES", XI. Kriterion [online]. 2015, vol.56, n.131, pp.129-148. ISSN 1981-5336.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0100-512X2015n13108mfs.

The aim of this paper is to examine the emergence of the Augustinian concept of future in "Confessions" XI. We will argue that the notion of future is both an essential element and a specific expression of Augustine's concept of time. Firstly, we will focus on the Augustinian reflections about the creation of the world and the question whether time is a being or not. The notion of instant and its kinetic nature will be the center of our concerns in the second part of the paper. In the third part, we will examine Augustine's reflections about the measurement of time, that is, about time as object of quantification. Finally, we will be back to the notion of future and its connection with the concept of movement.

Palabras clave : Augustine; time; future; instant; impression.
