La beatitudo (e il suo nesso con l’amor) in Tommaso d’Aquino

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of the paper is to reconstruct Aquinas' theory about happiness. First of all it refers his conception of love and the relationship of the latter with gaudium, which is available to amor amicitiae but not to amor concupiscentiae. Then it focuses Thomas’ perspective about the entity and the activity that maximally produce happiness, or beatitude, which includes immutability and dynamism, without contradiction. Finally it treats the link between morality, love and partial happiness/contentment, then the paradox of happiness and the necessity of passions for the fullness of morality.
