Good and Evil
“Whether for good or evil, each man lives by his love.” -St. Augustine of Hippo What is the good? For St. Thomas Aquinas, this question is absolutely central. He begins by looking at the good as that which all men desire. In other words, every act of our freedom actually arises from our desire for the good. If we didn’t desire a good, we would never choose or will anything. Thus, the good is at the very origin of our freedom. Good and Evil (Aquinas 101) - Fr. Dominic Legge, O.P." from video introduction.
