Oppositional pairs and Christological synthesis: Rereading Augustine's 'De Trinitate'

The author aligns the modern structuralist emphasis on the meaning-generating capacity of 'oppositional pairs' with Augustine's penchant for the ancient rhetorical trope for the 'antithesis'. The resultant rereading of De Trin. uncovers Augustine's rhetorical construction of a christocentric theological epistemology that undergirds the work's structure, polemical agenda, and the classic theologoumenon of the trinitarian image in human interiority.
