Without being the object of a separate treaty, the political thought
of St Thomas Aquinas is very clearly conceived and developed and finds
expression throughout his work. This study presents its fundamental elements
concerning man, the human community and the relation of a community to
its members. It is on this foundation that the traditional themes of justice, prudence
and the relation of the two powers are based. We find in the Common
Doctor a very full approach to the political—taken more from theology than
from philosophy—even if the latter, drawn from Aristotle, is remarkably well
