Q[88] How The Human Soul Knows What Is Above Itself
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]  

We must now consider how the human soul knows what is above itself, viz. immaterial substances. Under this head there are three points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the human soul in the present state of life can understand the immaterial substances called angels, in themselves?

A[2] Whether it can arrive at the knowledge thereof by the knowledge of material things?

A[3] Whether God is the first object of our knowledge?
