< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We must now consider the causes of sorrow: under which head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether sorrow is caused by the loss of a good or rather by the presence of an evil?

A[2] Whether desire is a cause of sorrow?

A[3] Whether the craving for unity is a cause of sorrow?

A[4] Whether an irresistible power is a cause of sorrow?
