Considering the human act using the notion of vice. Explorations of texts signed “Thomas Aquinas” | Dominican University College

In the wake of the renewal of virtue ethics, works on Thomas Aquinas’ propositions on the human act and agency have mainly considered it from the point of view of virtue. This seminar will focus on an approach via the notion and explorations of “vice”. It will propose a more complex understanding of the notion of act and agency in Aquinas and of the conditions for ethical discussions on human action.
