1. Consider the section from "Does He not make anyone happy?" up to "…what can not be what we have, is not free in us." It concerns happiness, God, power, will, and perhaps other concepts. Attempt to reformulate, clarify, or elaborate upon one or two points made by the characters. For example, what seems to be implied about happiness? About the relationship between power and will? Between happiness and power? Explain your interpretation, and use passages from the text to justify it.

2. Consider the following story. You are kidnapped by a man. He tells you he is going to cut off your fingers, but then he says, don’t get too upset, because he has perfected the art of brainwashing. He will subject you to an intensive brainwashing regimen, at the end of which, you will want to have your fingers cut off. At the time he cuts them off, you will be looking forward to it! In having your fingers cut off, nothing that you don’t want to happen will be happening. And the brainwashing will be so complete that you’ll never change your mind afterwards. So there’s nothing to worry about, he says. Muse upon the story. Assuming the man is telling the truth, describe your reaction. Address, for example, whether you would find it comforting that you’ll be getting something you’ll want, and any other relevant questions that occur to you. Then, relate your thoughts about it to the Augustine reading. Explain how it illustrates a theme, viewpoint, or thesis -or raises a question- pertaining to the reading.
