L'âme chez Origène et Augustin : ontologie et enjeux théologiques

Abstract : This study is not a precise analysis of the place of Platonism in Origen and Augustine's understanding of the soul but rather aims to verify the traces of the Platonic idea of the soul in Origen's Pèri Archôn and in Augustine's Philosophical Dialogues. The interest of such a method brings to light the hypothesis of the revival of the notion of the soul in both of them as a means of making Augustine and Origen understood by their contemporaries while reinterpreting it in an original way. The theological issues such as the hypostatic union and the divinisation are made explicit through Origen's Homilies and Commentaries on Sacred Scripture insofar as his approach is centered around the question of the anima Christi. For Augustine, the focus is on the place of Christ in the life of the anima, thus introducing the idea of the knowledge of the soul in view of its divinisation with the De Trinitate. The aim of such a study is to redefine the reciprocal contributions of philosophy and theology by deepening the theological questions that are relevant to philosophy.
