< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the effects of pain or of sorrow: under which head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether pain deprives one of the power to learn?

A[2] Whether the effect of sorrow or pain is to burden the soul?

A[3] Whether sorrow or pain weakens all activity?

A[4] Whether sorrow is more harmful to the body than all the other passions of the soul?
