Belatedness: Augustine on Transformation in Time & History. The goal of this manuscript is to build on my earlier research into Augustinian temporality by streamlining my findings and making them more accessible to a wider scholarly audience. Over the past year, I’ve worked to meet this goal by rewriting key sections, re-envisioning the relationships between the various chapters, and excising certain sub-arguments that might make more sense as standalone journal articles. The end result is, in my view, a readable monograph that can help both the Augustinian specialist and the general academic reader better understand Augustine’s place in the history of human thinking about the nature of time.

For a general idea of the tenor of this project, see:
