Q[97] Of Change In Laws
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider change in laws: under which head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether human law is changeable?

A[2] Whether it should be always changed, whenever anything better occurs?

A[3] Whether it is abolished by custom, and whether custom obtains the force of law?

A[4] Whether the application of human law should be changed by dispensation of those in authority?
