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 reflects on St. Augustine’s De Magistro. He praises teaching for granting us the power to compare living human time with abstract thinking, and names hope, faith, and love as the great powers of the human soul. More than mere virtues or dogmas, they are the forces which create time spans, and so underlie all history.
