Dissecting de libero arbitrio
De libero arbitrio libri tres English : On Free Choice of the Will is a book by Augustine of Hippo about the freedom of will structured as a Platonic dialogue with a student names Evodius. Young Augustine wrote it in three volumes, one — in Rome, after his baptism , and the other two between and , after his priestly ordination in Africa. The author started De libero arbitrio as a part of a series of works against Manichaeism and Pelagianism specifically, and Gnosticism broadly and argued in favor of aspects of Scepticism. Augustine challenged Determinism , identifying it as a heresy that leads to Dualism, in the first volume and investigated the conditions of the existence of God and knowledge in the other two parts. In Book I, Augustine outlines basic Hamartiological concepts about the nature of sin and answers the basic question "Where does evil come from? In Book II, Augustine answers the charge that God "should not" have given mankind Free Will, and that somehow he is morally culpable for the actions of mankind.
