< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]   A[7]   A[8]  

We must now consider anger: and (1) anger in itself; (2) the cause of anger and its remedy; (3) the effect of anger.

Under the first head there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether anger is a special passion?

A[2] Whether the object of anger is good or evil?

A[3] Whether anger is in the concupiscible faculty?

A[4] Whether anger is accompanied by an act of reason?

A[5] Whether anger is more natural than desire?

A[6] Whether anger is more grievous than hatred?

A[7] Whether anger is only towards those with whom we have a relation of justice?

A[8] Of the species of anger.
