1. In his monumental Summa Theologiae, St. Thomas Aquinas, devotes relatively little space to the natural law – merely a single question and passing mention in two others. There, he bases his doctrine of the natural law, as one would expect, on his understanding of God and His relation to His creation. He grounds his theory of natural law in the notion of an eternal law (in God). In asking whether there is an eternal law, he begins by stating a general definition of all law: Law is a dictate of reason from the ruler for the community he rules. This dictate of reason is first and foremost within the reason or intellect of the ruler. It is the idea of what should be done to ensure the well-ordered functioning of whatever community the ruler has care for. (It is a fundamental tenet of Aquinas’ political theory that rulers rule for the sake of the governed, i.e., for the good and well-being of those subject to the ruler.) Since he has elsewhere shown that God rules the world with his reaso...

7 hours ago Ethics for A-Level - Chapter 4. Aquinas’s Natural Law

1. In order to understand natural law, we must first agree what we mean when we speak of law. According to St. Thomas Aquinas, law is “nothing else than an ordinance of reason for the common good, made by him who has care of the community, and promulgated” (Summa Theologiae I.II.90.4.co). When this definition of law is applied to God, we find a perfect argument from fittingness. God has a perfect intellect that can reason perfectly. He is the all-powerful ruler of the universe who only desires the supreme good of that which he has created. In creating all things, he has access to all things that exist. If He wishes to promulgate any law to His creation, He can include that law as part of that creation’s nature. In essence, God is the perfect lawmaker. It is clear then that, since law is “nothing else but a dictate of practical reason emanating from the ruler who governs a perfect community” (Summa Theologiae I.II.91.1.co), there is a law of God. “The world is ruled by Divine Providence...

1. God designed natural law so that humans participate in God’s eternal law. As rational creatures we can determine and seek that which is good and avoid that which is evil.
2. According to Thomas Aquinas, the first precept of natural law is “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.” Every subsequent moral precept is based on this “first precept of natural law.”
3. The #1 mistake people make about natural law is that they assume that natural law is secular and non-religious. Not true according to Saint Thomas Aquinas.
4. Natural law is common to all the nations. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Daoist, animist…natural law applies to you.
5. Natural law is insufficient for human beatitude and salvation. Thomas Aquinas is really clear about this. He teaches that natural law is not enough. A human person can never erase natural law from his heart, but he can mitigate its force in his life.

But from this, it does not necessarily follow that an unjust law is not a genuine law. It could be that it is the case that a man, by disobeying the law of his society, is in fact committing a moral wrong in addition to a legal one.

1. With morals and natural law under siege today, and the liberal agendas cross hairs targeting our right to voice our moral convictions, we must be prepared to defend our positions legitimacy.1 Either we accept that the foundation of morals and law lies in Gods wisdom or we become mired in the quicksand of todays relativism. For moral order to exist, there must be an objective moral law easily perceived, common to all men and obliging to all equally. Otherwise, everything would be subject to mens fantasies or to the rulers whims, leading to social chaos and tyranny. Today we witness complete scorn for any moral rule that restrains individual behavior, especially in sexual matters, and a kind of legislative/judicial dictatorship imposing unnatural laws on society. On the one hand, liberal judges approve death by starvation, abortion rights and favor the homosexual agenda while on the other hand, they remove religious symbols from public places. Without an objective moral law, social order is impossible. Therefore, an objective moral law must exist to guide human behavior, and prevent that individual freedom and the good of society be endangered. Not only must moral law be objective but also be in accordance with mans nature, that is, connatural with him. If what the law commands, forbids and allows did not resonate deep within mans conscience, the only thing keeping man from breaking the law would be the fear of the police. In that case, morality would depend entirely on the number of policemen, and each man would need a policeman to watch him a tall times. But then, as Juvenal, a pagan Roman satirist, put it, Sed quis custodietipsos custodes? But who shall watch the watchmen? Let us consider another point. All law is a manifestation of the will of a legislator who imposes, commands, forbids, permits and punishes. If the law is only a fruit of mans will, how can it be imposed upon other men? Since we all have the same nature, the will of any man is equal to that of another, and no one man can impose his will on another. Therefore, for a man-made law to bind other men, it must proceed from a will superior to mans will. For a law to be effective, it must originate in the Gods divine will. Saint Paul makes this clear when he affirms that all authority comes from God: Let every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God, and they that resist, purchase to themselves damnation.2 This is the solutiona human legislator is only the representative of the Supreme Legislator, and when we obey the will of the human legislator, we submit to Gods will, not to a mans will. The law that precedes all human law is called Eternal Law. How can we prove through reason the existence of Eternal Law? Human positive law must be based on natural law, and not on anyones whims, popular consensus or historical circumstances. When positive law is not based on natural law, it is not a true law. We are not obliged to obey it, and sometimes cannot obey it, as in Antigone. If we deny in theory or in practice the objectivity of moral law, we transform the moral act into a mere personal choice. Many declare, It is my conscience that decides what a moral act is. It is true that conscience guided by reason judges whether something is good or bad, but to judge correctly conscience must apply correct moral principles, which are the objective norms that must guide our actions. In other words, personal conscience does not create the norm of morality: it only applies the moral rules embodied in the natural law. Slowly but surely, to use Professor Corrêa de Oliveiras metaphor, more and more people are getting off the train of Revolution and turning toward the ideals of Counter-Revolution. More people are longing for something they have never really known: Christian Civilization. There is a widespread notion that we must return to the basics, to the essentials of life, to the Eternal Law and natural law, to the Truth. In a word, people are beginning to long for the promise of Our Savior, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.13 And since without grace we can do nothing, what could be better than to resort continuously to Our Lady, who the Church calls, seat of the Incarnate Wisdom and throne of the Divine Word Himself?

1. St. Thomas Aquinas, a medieval Roman Catholic scholar, reconciled the political philosophy of Aristotle with Christian faith. In doing so, he contended that a just ruler or government must work for the "common good" of all. Before the time of Jesus, the Greeks developed concepts about how the world worked and human beings behaved. Aristotle, who died in 322 B.C., was an Athenian philosopher who wrote about science, ethics, politics, and almost every other realm of knowledge. Throughout his writings, Aristotle did not teach that the Greek gods or religion controlled the world and its people. Instead, his observations led him to conclude that nature was purposeful and driven by natural laws that human reason could discover. These natural laws provided a way to explain the world and the place of humans within it. In one of Aristotle’s works called The Politics, he reasoned, "man is by nature a political animal." By this, he meant that people were naturally destined to live in groups, w...

1. The sense and force of these questions, and the main features of the kind of answer given by natural law theories, can be given a preliminary indication. On the one hand, natural law theory holds that law's source-based characterits dependence upon social facts such as legislation, custom or judicially established precedentsis a fundamental and primary element in law's capacity to advance the common good, to secure human rights, or to govern with integrity (cf. Green 2003). On the other hand (again cf. Green 2003), the question whether law is of its very nature morally problematic has from the outset been the subject of consideration by leaders of the tradition. (The first issue that Aquinas takes up about human law in his set-piece discussion of law, Summa Theologiae, I-II, q. 95 a. 1, is whether human law [positive law] is beneficialmight we not do better with exhortations and warnings, or with judges appointed simply to do justice, or with wise leaders ruling as they see fit? And see I.3 below.) Classic and leading contemporary texts of natural law theory treat law as morally problematic, understanding it as a normally indispensable instrument of great good but one that readily becomes an instrument of great evil unless its authors steadily and vigilantly make it good by recognizing and fulfilling their moral duties to do so, both in settling the content of its rules and principles and in the procedures and institutions by which they make and administer it. Natural law theories all understand law as a remedy against the great evils of, on the one side anarchy (lawlessness), and on the other side tyranny. And one of tyranny's characteristic forms is the co-optation of law as a mask for fundamentally lawless decisions cloaked in the forms of law and legality. If one thinks perceptively and carefully about what to pursue (or shun) and do (or forbear from), one can readily understand and assent to practical propositions such as that life and health, knowledge, and harmony with other people are desirable for oneself and anyone else. The intrinsic desirability of such states of affairs as one's flourishing in life and health, in knowledge and in friendly relations with others, is articulated in foundational, underived principles of practical reasoning (reasoning towards choice and action). Such first principles of practical reasoning direct one to actions and dispositions and arrangements that promote such intelligible goods, and that directiveness or normativity is expressed by I should or I ought in senses which although truly normative are only incipiently moral. Thomas Aquinas' account of human positive law treats the central case of government as the self-government of a free people by the rulers and institutions which that people has appointed for that purpose, and the central case of law is the co-ordination of willing subjects by law which, by its public character (promulgation), clarity, generality, stability and practicability, treats those subjects as partners in public reason (Summa Theologiae I-II q. 90 a. 4c; q. 95 a. 3c; q. 96 a. 1; q. 97 a. 2). For he defines law as universal (in the logician's sense of universal) practical propositions conceived in the reason of the ruler(s) and communicated to the reason of the ruled so that the latter will treat those propositions, at least presumptively, as reasons for actionreasons as decisive for each of them as if each had conceived and adopted them by personal judgment and choice. Once the determinatio is validly made, fulfilling the criteria of validity provided by or under the relevant legal system's constitutional law, it changes the pre-existing state of the law by introducing a new or amended legal rule and proposition(s) of law. The new or amended legal rule gives judges, other officials, and citizens a new or amended reason for action (or forbearance). The fact that the new or amended rule depends upon the social-fact source constituted or employed by the act of determinatio does not entail that a normative reason (an ought) is being illogically derived from a bare fact (an is). Rather, the new or amended rule is normative, directive and (where that is its legal meaning ) obligatory because that social fact can be the second premise in a practical syllogism whose first premise is normative: there ought to be a maternity hospital in this town, people ought to be protected against homicidal assault, people ought to be required to contribute to the public expenses of appropriate governmental functions, victims of assault, theft, broken contracts, negligence, etc., ought to be compensated, road traffic should be regulated to reduce damaging collisions, and so forth. The moral normativity of the principle is replicated in the more specified rule created by the determinatio, even though the latter is not an entailment of the former. Natural law theory concurs with Raz and Gardner in rejecting the inclusivist restriction as ungrounded, but dissents from them in holding (as Dworkin does too: Dworkin 1978, 47) that any moral rule or principle which a court is bound or authorized to apply, precisely as a court, can reasonably be counted or acknowledged as a law, i.e., as a rule or principle which should be considered already part of our law. Against positivists generally, it holds that (i) little or nothing turns on whether or not moral principles binding on courts precisely as courts should be called part of our law; but (ii) if something does turn on the nameif, for example, it be recalled that courts cannot take judicial notice of any rule or principle not part of our law (and so, as in respect of rules of foreign law, have to hear evidence of the rule's existence and content)it is sounder to say that judicially applicable moral rules and principles (unlike applicable foreign law) are ipso iure (i.e., precisely as morally and judicially applicable) rules of law. Such rules belong to the ius gentium portion of our law. In line with Dworkin's two-dimensions account (thus qualified), natural law theory will assent to the thesis that Green makes characteristic of legal positivism:
