I have lately been spending part of each day with Augustine's Confessions and Pascal's Pensées. Book X of the Confessions is astoundingly contemporary. Don't read any of the stuff in the media about brain science without taking a look at what Augustine, 15 hundred years ago, had to say about the mind.
