This book represents the single most important contribution to the study surrounding the historical and philosophical influence of St. Augustine of Hippo on Martin Heidegger's early thought and on his magnum opus, "Being and Time". This work sets the record straight about the profound influence of Augustine on "Being and Time", which promises a renaissance in phenomenology, the emergence of a new field within this discipline, and the restoration of religion to phenomenological speculation.
