On the Law of Nature in the Three States of Life, and the Proofs That This Law Is Summarized in the Decalogue

Scholia

Abstract

Thus far, we have inquired in general concerning nature as the guide of man in pursuit of the actions proper to himself, and we have laid the firm and immovable foundations on which the rest depends. But, because the actions of men vary in accordance with [different] types of life, we must distinguish the types of life, and we must adapt for each one its own proper end, composed from those three [ends that I mentioned above]. Truly, no consideration will be more pleasant, none more charming, none more useful in common life, none, in short, more worthy or magnificent than this one.
