After considering prudence we must in due sequence consider justice, the consideration of which will be fourfold:
A Of justice;
A Of its parts;
A Of the corresponding gift;
A Of the precepts relating to justice.
Four points will have to be considered about justice: (1) Right; (2) Justice itself; (3) Injustice; (4) Judgment.
Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
A Whether right is the object of justice?
A Whether right is fittingly divided into natural and positive right?
A Whether the right of nations is the same as natural right?
A Whether right of dominion and paternal right are distinct species?
