Comparison of Augustine’s to Hegel’s vision of creation of man, as well as their understanding of soul, could show Hegelian contribution to deconstruction of long-lasted essentialist philosophical prejudice regarding the nature of man. Augustine’s understanding of soul is in the very core of the most influential current of western European theological tradition. To the extent that this tradition was intertwined with history of philosophy, his doctrine was very influential in the subsequent development of philosophy. Analysis of Hegel’s understanding of soul, as a auto-poiesis of sorts, gives nontraditional, even radically different, answer to the question of that which is the most defining trait of man.
