IEDEREEN MOET ONDERWIJZEN, AUGUSTINUS, DE EERSTE METANOOM

by Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, as "Jeder Muβ Lehren," a part of Die Sprache des Menschengeschlechts. Translated from the German by Sam Hartman and Hermien Vriezen-Rozemond. Vereniging Rosenstock-Huessy Huis, Haarlem, The Netherlands, 1986. Paperback, 36 pages.


In this essay Rosenstock-Huessy expands on St. Augustine’s De Magistro, praising teaching for allowing us to compare living human time with abstract thinking. He also describes hope, faith, and love as men’s great powers. Being powers, they are not merely virtues or dogmas; they are powers because they are the forces which create time spans, and so structure history.
