What Profits for a Man to Gain: Just (the) Price (of the Soul)

Jude Chua Soo Meng


This article advances a new way to define the just price based on the thoughts of Aristotle and Saint Thomas Aquinas and that I also recast in perspectives that interest contemporary debates. I argue that the just price be simply the price that the (metaphorically) just person determines. The primary burden of this article, therefore, will be to flesh this out in all its details, which will involve explaining, among other things, the role and place of undeflected practical reasons that have their source in the first practical principles, that is, the natural law.
