|Bubner I 138
Good/Evil/Augustine/Bubner: existential examination of the essentials of the way of life: "suddenly a voice rises like myself" (!), whether it is someone else but me or within me is not known.
Purpose of the self-talks: finding out precisely this. He calls the talker Ratio and answers him in dialogue.
Augustine: he claims not to know whether the talker was material or immortal, but what he thought was true and knowable.
Reflection/Bubner: what happens in it? Surely it is not a straightforward reflection. There is a core of the ego that is not questioned. But in meditation is uncertain who or what I am.
God, who is not the partner of the conversation, still forms the reference point.
Objective: Discovery of one's own self.
Doubt/Augustine: Doubt and deception mean a defect, which, however, cannot be understood without the idea of perfection that compensates for the defect.
