From Robert Grosseteste to Jean-François Lyotard, Augustine’s advice that point is a “dilation of the soul” (distentio animi) has been taken up as a seminal and arguable time-concept, but within the house of Time, David van Dusen argues that this ‘dilation’ has been essentially misinterpreted.

Time in Confessions XI is a dilation of the senses—in beasts, as in people. And Augustine’s time-concept in Confessions XI isn't really Platonic—but in schematic phrases, Epicurean.
Identifying new affects at the Confessions—from Aristoxenus to Lucretius—while retaining Augustine’s phenomenological interpreters in view, The area of Time is a path-breaking paintings on Confessions X to XII and a ranging contribution to the historical past of the concept that of time.
