After the foregoing we must consider the first production of man, concerning which there are four subjects of treatment: (1) the production of man himself; (2) the end of this production; (3) the state and condition of the first man; (4) the place of his abode.
Concerning the production of man, there are three things to be considered: (1) the production of man's soul; (2) the production of man's body; (3) the production of the woman.
Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
A Whether man's soul was something made, or was of the Divine substance?
A Whether, if made, it was created?
A Whether it was made by angelic instrumentality?
A Whether it was made before the body?
