Summary

Saint Thomas Aquinas, an Italian philosopher and Dominican friar who lived during the 13th century, was the greatest of the medieval theologians. His writings harmonized faith and reason, which resulted in a Christian form of rationalism.
This treatise comprises questions 90–97 of the Summa Theologica, in which St. Thomas presents a philosophical analysis of the nature and structure of law. Believing that law achieves its results by imposing moral obligations rather than outright force on those subject to it, he proceeds to explore vital questions about the essence of law, kinds of law, effects of law, eternal law, natural law, human law, and changes in law.

Masterful reading of a masterful philosopher

Top-notch scholastic philosophy read by a top-notch narrator. This treatise only represents a fragment of the original source material but is nonetheless indicative of the high caliber of the work.

Thank you!

I really appreciate Audible for making this audiobook available. I only wish that it could be updated; it is after all from 1991.
