Study Notes

  • Aristotle believed in a God who created an order of things, which he called the "natural law".
  • This natural law is based on the discordance principle, which states that what is in opposition to each other is not legitimate.
  • This includes things like the morality of sacrificing animals, which is in opposition to the natural order of things that animals should not be killed for food.
  • Aristotle also believed that the natural law was knowable through reason alone, and that it is universal.
  • This means that it applies to everyone in the same way, regardless of their cultural background.
  • Tomás de Aquino elaborates on the meaning of "natural law" in the context of ethics, and argues that it is based on the principle of human nature.
  • He believes that the law should protect the individual's "natural rights", which are the things that are inherent to human nature and cannot be taken away.
