Principles of St. Augustine

1. Dualism - Humans are made up of body & soul, soul animates and directs the body.

2. Emphasis on Free Will

3. God is the ultimate truth - To know God is the ultimate goal of life.

4. Revelation & inner experience were the two sources of truth; introspection was to be used for all psychological answers.

5. Suspicion of reason and distrust of senses; finding God requires turning away from senses & not relying on logic.
