In this lecture/discussion from his Spring 2013 Introduction to Philosophy class, Dr. Gregory B. Sadler begins his study of St. Augustine's classic work "On Free Choice of the Will." He discusses several aspects of Augustine's approach to Christian philosophy, then moves into the question of theodicy and the problem of evil. He then discusses Augustine's views on what actually is wrong or bad in wrong actions, working through a number of unsatisfactory answers to the question until we arrive at the will, its desires and choice, and the objects to which it gives priority.
