We have now to consider happiness: and (1) in what it consists; (2) what it is; (3) how we can obtain it.

Concerning the first there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether happiness consists in wealth?

A[2] Whether in honor?

A[3] Whether in fame or glory?

A[4] Whether in power?

A[5] Whether in any good of the body?

A[6] Whether in pleasure?

A[7] Whether in any good of the soul?

A[8] Whether in any created good?
