Quote from: Geremia on October 10, 2020, 09:03:48 PMIntegralism: A Manual of Poilitical Philosophy with Fr. Crean, O.P.
Quote from: ch. 1Political philosophy is therefore a branch of moral philosophy. Moral philosophy in general is the study of man's life, and of the good which strictly befits, or is proportioned to, man's nature: its goal is to show us how to attain this good on earth. Political philosophy, or politics, is the study of man's life insofar as he is united with his fellow men in a way that extends beyond the family. Since, as we shall see, the good that men may obtain by this union is greater than the good which they may obtain by their union in domestic society, which in turn is greater than the good which they may obtain as individual human beings, politics is the study of the highest good, proportionate to human nature, which may be obtained on earth. It is therefore the highest branch of moral philosophy.
