Online Seminar Series

Natural Law – Treatise on Law by Thomas Aquinas

Saturday, April 29, 2023

The term natural law is a little hazy. Is natural law simply a more authoritative version of positive law? And if that is true, how might we understand how the founders of the American republic came to believe in the proposition that we are all endowed with certain inalienable rights which are self-evident truths? Conversely, do science and civil law show us that there are no natural laws, rather only values?

If natural law is real is it grounded in the metaphysical or in something else? How do we reconcile the problems of the is and ought, skepticism, positivism, notions of right and wrong, teleology, scientism, the connection between virtue and happiness, and human dignity?

This portion of the series will study the Treatise on Law by Thomas Aquinas. Registrants need not have attended prior sessions in the series to fruitfully gain from discussing this work, which stands autonomously.
