Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
FP: Treatise On The One God
Q[5] Of Goodness In General
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]  

We next consider goodness: First, goodness in general. Secondly, the goodness of God.

Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether goodness and being are the same really?

A[2] Granted that they differ only in idea, which is prior in thought?

A[3] Granted that being is prior, whether every being is good?

A[4] To what cause should goodness be reduced?

A[5] Whether goodness consists in mode, species, and order?

A[6] Whether goodness is divided into the virtuous, the useful, and the pleasant?
