    • 511 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The judicial system often relies on confessions to determine a suspect’s guilt or innocence. And yet, factors such as social influences and pressures from the interrogation can impact the way one views one’s memory when presented with false evidence. For instance, the type of questions and methods the police use can alter the actual memories the subject has. As a result, a subject may become convinced that he or she is guilty when an internalized confession starts to form.

    A few notable autobiographies existed in Europe before Rousseau published the Confessions, but his work in many ways represented an entirely new literary form. Although works such as St. Augustine’s own Confessions (a.d. 397) had previously been widely read and celebrated, religious works of that kind differed greatly from Rousseau’s own, since they sought to convey an inspirational story of religious virtuosity. By contrast, Rousseau’s Confessions sought to bare the entire life of its author…

    Book X marks the transition in the Confessions from autobiography to the direct analysis of philosophical and theological issues. It is also noteworthy that the length of the Books begins to increase dramatically here (Book X is more than twice the length of most of the previous Books). Although this is a sudden transition in form and content, Augustine is following an underlying structure.
