How Does St. Augustine Contribute To Happiness

Satisfactory Essays
In St. Augustine opinion it is not possible to achieve true happiness by focusing solely on the good of your body. According to St. Augustine, the soul is more important that the body. Furthermore, St. Augustine mention in the text that there is nothing more invigorating or grater to the body than the soul. I do agree with St. Augustine train of thought on this matter and he is defiantly my favorite of the philosophers in this book so far. In my opinion, no one could ever be happy if they just focused on the physical aspect of life. Human beings are more than just flesh, so there has to be some sort of nurture of the soul.
