Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
FS: Treatise On The Passions
Q[24] Of Good And Evil In The Passions Of The Soul
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider good and evil in the passions of the soul: and under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether moral good and evil can be found in the passions of the soul?

A[2] Whether every passion of the soul is morally evil?

A[3] Whether every passion increases or decreases the goodness of malice of an act?

A[4] Whether any passion is good or evil specifically?
