PHIL 7719 Aquinas on Virtue & Law (Spring: 3 )
Ethics has become once again a central concern for the understanding of human life. Before After Virtue thee was Virtue. For "Legitimation Theory" thee has to be Law. This course will study Aquinas' systematic approach to ethics in the framework of the Summa Theologiae. After a discussion of the structure of the Summa, it will focus on the concepts of "Virtue and Law" in Part II.1 and on the "Particular Virtues" as elaborated in Part II.2.
