DE QUANTITATE ANIMAE PDF

Mazubei In the sense of extensive magnitude, Augustine denies that the soul has quantity at all. But this aniimae the principle that drives ex- tramission theories as well. It is because Evodius is walking back from a previous commitment, shared with the extramission theory, that this is properly regarded as a dialectical concession. It is a mode of distal perception. The stick analogy captures the formal features of the Timaeus account, namely, that the compound of emitted light and external light constitutes a continuous, rectilin- ear, unity—just like a straight stick.

Mazubei In the sense of extensive magnitude, Augustine denies that the soul has quantity at all. But this aniimae the principle that drives ex- tramission theories as well. It is because Evodius is walking back from a previous commitment, shared with the extramission theory, that this is properly regarded as a dialectical concession.

It is a mode of distal perception. The stick analogy captures the formal features of the Timaeus account, namely, that the compound of emitted light and external light constitutes a continuous, rectilin- ear, unity—just like a straight stick. De quantitate animae Open Library A third spatial dimension, height, is latter added, De quantitate animae 6. In a way, Augustine, at this point of the dialogue, has elicited a dialectical concession from Evodius. Some modern commentators have marked a distinction between the psy- chological and the physiological claims that Augustine makes.

The sensitive soul is the principle governing sensation. Indeed, so construed, Augustine offers not one positive argument but two: However, these formal features are preserved in accounts given by thinkers that explicitly reject the extramission theory.

Compare Evodius position to the Giants: And yet, as soon as you open your eyes, lo and behold, you yourself are here, your ray is there. Francisco Suarez Commentaria una cum questionibus in libros Aristotelis de anima 3.

A failure to recognize this, and so misattribute to Augustine a commit- ment to extramission, is due, at least in part, to unclarity about the commitments of the quantitatte theory. Shall I say that a bodily experience of which the soul is aware directly is not sensation?

De quantitate animae Justice lacks length, width, and height. That the body is an instrument of the soul is a distinctively Platonic thought compare Plotinus, Ennead 4. Moreover, it echoes a Neoplatonic theme. The explicit awareness of the natural environment afforded by visual experience xe akin to light not only in its rectilin- ear directionality and its power to manifest latent presence, but in the manner in which it discloses distal aspects of that environment.

So the latter accounts are not purely extramissive. Se Center Find new research papers in: Moreover, just because justice is real despite being inextended, it does not follow that the soul itself is inextended. That we touch whatever we behold may be too weak, by itself, to establish that, but it is combined with the claim that what you see is what you touch with the visual ray.

Nor is it, in this instance, even quantitzte as received authoritative opinion. The passive power to be affected where one is not conferred by the sensitive soul is similarly a power that no soulless body may possess. Augustinus Hipponensis — De Quantitate Animae liber unus It cannot be grasped and of- fers no resistance to touch and hence lacks strength, robustam.

Notice that Augustine, after having introduced the extramissionist imagery of rays, immediately brackets that commitment, claiming that it is treated subtly and ob- scurely and claims that the explanation ce perceptual discernment by rays has not yet been clearly demonstrated.

At any rate, such accounts not only involve extramissive elements but intromissive elements as well. Shall I say that a bodily experience of which the soul is aware directly is not sensation? And since what acts upon one when one sees is located where one is not, in seeing one is acted upon where one is not.

First, in discussions of the soul in late antiquity, psychological and physiological issues are intertwined, which is not to say confused. However, it is not true that growth by itself is not hidden from the soul. At any rate, such accounts not only involve extramissive elements but intromissive elements as well.
