Q[63] Of The Cause Of Virtues
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the cause of virtues; and under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether virtue is in us by nature?

A[2] Whether any virtue is caused in us by habituation?

A[3] Whether any moral virtues are in us by infusion?

A[4] Whether virtue acquired by habituation, is of the same species as infused virtue?
