Abstract: St. Augustine’s knowledge of Aristotle was precarious and indirect. However, we find in his work traces of topics that seem to come from Aristotle’s exoteric works, specifically the Protrepticus . These topics came to St. Augustine’s knowledge through Cicero’s Hortensius , as scholars already know. However, hitherto there has not been a study that jointly executes the following three tasks: analyze these topics systematically in order to discuss in a critical and updated way their nature and relevance; study what role Cicero played in their transmission; and examine St. Augustine’s use of them in relation to the context in which he quotes them. I carry out this triple task in the present article.
