Fig 4.7 – Autobiography

Text: Page 132

In Confessions, one of the most important works in Western literature, Augustine described his conversion to Roman Catholicism, providing the first known autobiography. In Confessions, Augustine argued for the importance of self-analysis by analyzing his history through an introspective and self-reflective psychological journey written directly to God. Symbolized by stepping back and looking at oneself, Augustine was one of the first Western scholars to describe and conceive of a sperate internal psychological self by changing the psychological locus of control from the outside to the inside.
