Para leer la espiritualidad de Agustín. Elementos antropológicos

The article offers a synthesis of Augustine’s anthropological thought, pointing out the change he makes in the way of researching after his election to the episcopate, as well as the importance of Platonism in the building of the “Augustinian man”. Thirdly, the article presents his understanding of the God-man relationship, which is made clear from the couple “freedom-grace”. The article affirms that there is a reciprocal interference between these three elements, so that, taken together, they can provide the essential lines of Augustine’s anthropological thought.
