Being and evil: philosophy in the shadow of Augustine

This thesis demonstrated the overlooked influence of Augustine's concepts of good and evil on Descartes, Kant and Schelling's metaphysical systems. More precisely, its contention was that Descartes, Kant and Schelling adhere to Augustine’s model for ontology by rendering being absolutely Good, so as to repress evil as a privation.
