Abstract

This study compares Augustine's remarks on language acquisition in the Confessions with those of Stoics, Epicureans, and Pyrrhonists and assesses the similarities and differences of the respective accounts. It studies a specific issue in Augustine's philosophy of language, language acquisition, which so far and in connection with ancient theories has received only passing attention.
