1 1, 1 | according to the various means ~through which knowledge 2 1, 1 | round: the astronomer by means of mathematics (i.e. abstracting 3 1, 1 | matter), but the physicist by means of matter itself. Hence 4 1, 1 | there is no longer any ~means of proving the articles 5 1, 1 | put ~forward anything by means of similitudes is to use 6 1, 1 | and ~spiritual truths by means of comparisons with material 7 1, 1 | truths be expounded by ~means of figures taken from corporeal 8 1, 2 | destroyed. But the ~word "God" means that He is infinite goodness. 9 1, 3 | what He is not, we have no means for considering how God 10 1, 5 | and relatively by the ~means through which it comes to 11 1, 5 | appetite ~relatively, as a means by which something tends 12 1, 8 | everywhere. For to be everywhere means ~to be in every place. But 13 1, 8 | to be present in anything means not to be absent from ~it. 14 1, 8 | by essence and presence means the same thing. Therefore 15 1, 10 | knowledge of eternity by means ~of time, which is nothing 16 1, 10 | 1~Reply OBJ 3: Necessary means a certain mode of truth; 17 1, 11 | negation of division; for "one" means undivided "being." This 18 1, 11 | inasmuch as privation means "negation in the subject," 19 1, 12 | kind of knowledge; which means that He is ~not comprehended.~ 20 1, 12 | twofold. In one sense it means a certain ~relation of one 21 1, 12 | united to the ~intellect by means of some entity, whereby 22 1, 12 | metaphorically described by means of sensible things.~Aquin.: 23 1, 12 | Therefore He is not seen by means of any created light.~Aquin.: 24 1, 12 | after, if I may by any ~means comprehend [Douay: 'apprehend']." 25 1, 12 | Divine ~essence, is seen by means of some similitude. For 26 1, 12 | what is in it are seen by means of one ~likeness. But all 27 1, 12 | successively; for ~time means succession.~Aquin.: SMT 28 1, 12 | understand many things by means of many ideas. But ~our 29 1, 12 | the knowledge of God by ~means of any created similitude 30 1, 13 | smiling" ~applied to a field means only that the field in the 31 1, 13 | of "lion" applied to God means only that God ~manifests 32 1, 13 | from the ~{theein} [which means to care of] and to cherish 33 1, 13 | from {theasthai}, which means to consider all things." 34 1, 14 | Return to its own essence means only that a thing subsists ~ 35 1, 14 | every act of understanding means understanding ~something. 36 1, 14 | the very nature of evil means the ~privation of good; 37 1, 14 | that Christ is born, which means the same thing as ~that 38 1, 14 | operable; ~for operable means the application of form 39 1, 15 | by His essence. And this means that He ~understands the 40 1, 18 | between the end ~and the means to that end, and duly coordinate 41 1, 18 | in God in so far as life means understanding only, and 42 1, 19 | The same applies to other ~means. Hence, since the goodness 43 1, 19 | the end and the necessary means ~predetermined for it by 44 1, 19 | the same ~relation to the means to the end, as do the premisses 45 1, 19 | and in another act the means ~to that end, his willing 46 1, 19 | cause of his willing the ~means. This cannot be the case 47 1, 19 | act he wills both end and ~means; for a thing cannot be its 48 1, 19 | to order to the end the means to the end. Now as God by 49 1, 19 | cause of His willing ~the means, yet He wills the ordering 50 1, 19 | wills the ordering of the means to the end. Therefore, ~ 51 1, 19 | He wills this to be as means to that; but does not will 52 1, 19 | the animal is ~only the means. Similarly the fornicator 53 1, 19 | either by himself or by means of another. He may show 54 1, 19 | He declares his will by means of another when he ~orders 55 1, 19 | effect as ~fulfilled by means of another.~Aquin.: SMT 56 1, 22 | presupposes the moral ~virtues, by means of which the appetitive 57 1, 23 | divine will, which by ~no means can be irrational; since 58 1, 23 | whom He ~predestines, by means of His mercy, as sparing 59 1, 23 | whom he reprobates, by means of His justice, in punishing 60 1, 23 | prayer; because through these means predestination is most certainly ~ 61 1, 25 | This is what ~Augustine means when he says (Contra Faust. 62 1, 28 | relation, however, necessarily means regard of one to ~another, 63 1, 29 | definition of "person," which means ~the singular in a determined " 64 1, 29 | the Greek {ousia}, ~which means essence, signifies a being 65 1, 29 | twofold. In one sense it means the quiddity of a thing, 66 1, 29 | say that the definition means the substance of a ~thing; 67 1, 29 | another sense substance means a subject or ~"suppositum," 68 1, 29 | usual way of speaking, it means the individual of ~the rational 69 1, 29 | sense, since it sometimes ~means essence, and sometimes means 70 1, 29 | means essence, and sometimes means hypostasis, in order to 71 1, 29 | shunned; since it is by no means profane, for it does not 72 1, 29 | forasmuch as "person" means as it were "by itself one" [ 73 1, 29 | that this word "person" means relation not only by use ~ 74 1, 30 | the divine nature; which means that there are ~several 75 1, 31 | in the masculine sense, means only a ~distinction of " 76 1, 31 | OBJ 3: The term "alien" means what is extraneous and dissimilar; ~ 77 1, 31 | Father" (Mt. ~11:27); which means that the Father alone knows 78 1, 31 | several senses. If "alone" means solitude in ~the Father, 79 1, 33 | OBJ 4: Further, property means what belongs to one alone. 80 1, 33 | only, but either that it means both these things together - 81 1, 33 | a ~third sense privation means the absence of what something 82 1, 34 | other; for "to understand" means only the habitude of the ~ 83 1, 34 | understood. In God, however, it means complete identity, because 84 1, 34 | 5). Whereas to "speak" means chiefly the ~habitude to 85 1, 34 | to utter a ~word. But by means of the word it imports a 86 1, 35 | Image, properly speaking, means whatever proceeds forth 87 1, 35 | the definition of ~image, means the form derived from one 88 1, 36 | Spirit of God" ~sometimes means the Father, as in the words 89 1, 36 | power; and that sometimes it means the Holy ~Ghost, as in the 90 1, 37 | follows that so far as love means only the relation of the 91 1, 37 | speaking of charity as it means the ~divine essence, as 92 1, 37 | importing a sign, so that it means, ~"the Holy Ghost is the 93 1, 37 | is taken essentially, it means that the Father ~and the 94 1, 37 | taken in a notional sense it means nothing else ~than "to spirate 95 1, 37 | proceeding; since "to speak" means to produce a word. ~Likewise 96 1, 37 | taken in a notional sense, means to produce love; and ~so 97 1, 38 | several senses. In one way it means identity, as ~Augustine 98 1, 39 | suppositum" in creatures ~by means of relations, but only by 99 1, 39 | adopted against the Arians, ~means that the three persons are 100 1, 39 | Son, and hence the ~phrase means that generation is repugnant 101 1, 39 | ablative case, and then it means "He ~begot another from 102 1, 39 | true of itself, and by no means ~accidentally.~Aquin.: SMT 103 1, 39 | the ~will, and "to enjoy" means to use joyfully, as Augustine 104 1, 39 | understand what Augustine means when he says ~(De Doctr. 105 1, 39 | book of life" directly means knowledge but ~indirectly 106 1, 39 | knowledge but ~indirectly it means life. For, as above explained ( 107 1, 40 | anything intrinsic, but means the way from ~something, 108 1, 40 | in God, since ~hypostasis means an individual substance. 109 1, 41 | acts?~(5) What this power means?~(6) Whether several persons 110 1, 41 | in its primary ~sense, means origin of movement; for, 111 1, 41 | 3: Action, so far as it means origin of movement, naturally ~ 112 1, 41 | cause, and thus necessary means ~what is violent; secondly, 113 1, 41 | is violent; secondly, it means a final cause, when a thing 114 1, 41 | to be necessary as the means to an end, so far as without 115 1, 41 | because God is not the ~means to an end, nor is He subject 116 1, 41 | these acts; since power only means the principle ~of act. So, 117 1, 41 | the power of generation means ~that whereby the generator 118 1, 42 | OBJ 3: The order of nature means not the ordering of nature ~ 119 1, 43 | in the one sent, when it means ~procession from the sender 120 1, 43 | wiser. In ~God, however, it means only procession of origin, 121 1, 43 | sending of a ~divine person means that He is given. Hence 122 1, 43 | be ~sent. For being sent means that the divine person is 123 1, 43 | The very idea of mission means procession from another, ~ 124 1, 43 | another, ~and in God it means procession according to 125 1, 43 | there have been any, came by means of the angels. ~Thus the 126 1, 44 | end is more noble than the means to the end.~Aquin.: SMT 127 1, 45 | understanding. For change means that the same something 128 1, 45 | Creation signified actively means the divine action, which ~ 129 1, 45 | pre-existing principles; but it means that the "composite" is ~ 130 1, 46 | as an artificer acts by means of many hammers accidentally, 131 1, 46 | understood "of being ~made" by means of movement, or as the term 132 1, 47 | 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, the means are proportional to the 133 1, 47 | only; whereas probable ~means of proof are many. Likewise 134 1, 47 | operation is concerned, if the ~means be equal, so to speak, to 135 1, 47 | the creature is not such a means to its end, which is God; 136 1, 48 | 1~Reply OBJ 1: Dionysius means that evil is not in existing 137 1, 48 | and fault?~[*Pain here means "penalty": such was its 138 1, 50 | the end is nobler than the means to the ~end. Hence Aristotle 139 1, 51 | perceived nothing by their means. Consequently, the angel 140 1, 56 | creature to the universe, means that He would add a new 141 1, 58 | time wills the end and the means to the end; and the ~intellect 142 1, 60 | love of choice regards the means to the ~end. But the same 143 1, 60 | cannot be both the end ~and a means to the end. Therefore natural 144 1, 61 | atmosphere Augustine possibly means the ~highest part of heaven, 145 1, 62 | merit conveys the idea of a means to an end; while ~what is 146 1, 62 | Free-will in its choice of means to an end is disposed just ~ 147 1, 63 | knowledge," while ~"Seraphim" means "those who are on fire," 148 1, 64 | and that is done either by means of the angels, ~or "through 149 1, 66 | others. In ~his sense it means the absence of all form, 150 1, 66 | followed that to be made means merely to be changed; ~for 151 1, 66 | that matter is ~known by means of form. Hence, considered 152 1, 66 | God" ~Scripture usually means the Holy Ghost, Who is said 153 1, 67 | stated (A[3]), and thus by means of light it was fitting ~ 154 1, 68 | than real. For ~Chrysostom means by the one heaven the whole 155 1, 69 | earth; but as ~a necessary means towards an end, namely, 156 1, 70 | the end is better than the means" (Topic. iii). But the ~ 157 1, 70 | to be living beings, this means nothing else but that substances ~ 158 1, 71 | its effects by determinate means, and consequently, those 159 1, 74 | form to a work of art is by means of the form ~of the art 160 1, 75 | all knowledge is caused by means of a likeness. But ~there 161 1, 75 | For it is clear that by means of the ~intellect man can 162 1, 75 | for it ~to understand by means of a bodily organ; since 163 1, 76 | united to such a body by means of another body?~(7) Whether 164 1, 76 | another body?~(7) Whether by means of an accident?~(8) Whether 165 1, 76 | understand all things by means of ~his intellect, and that 166 1, 76 | many ~drawing a ship by means of a rope; there will be 167 1, 76 | if the form, which is the means of ~knowledge, is material - 168 1, 76 | multiplication of that nature by means ~of individuating principles; 169 1, 76 | being deprived of the above ~means of protection.~Aquin.: SMT 170 1, 76 | or even to certain fixed means whether ~of defence or of 171 1, 76 | Anima iii), since by ~their means man can make for himself 172 1, 76 | is united to the body by means of a power, which is ~an 173 1, 76 | united to the animal body by means of a body?~Aquin.: SMT FP 174 1, 76 | united to the animal body by means of a ~body. For Augustine 175 1, 76 | united to the human body by means of a body.~Aquin.: SMT FP 176 1, 76 | is a subtle body, is the means of union between soul and ~ 177 1, 76 | be united to the body by means ~of an incorruptible body, 178 1, 76 | what is distant from it by means of ~something nearer.~Aquin.: 179 1, 76 | impossible for it to be united by means of another body. ~The reason 180 1, 76 | does it give existence by means of ~something else. Wherefore 181 1, 76 | never ~separated, and by means of which it is united to 182 1, 76 | is united to the body by means of a ~corporeal spirit. 183 1, 76 | is united to the body by means of light, ~which, they say, 184 1, 76 | be united to the body by means of the ~light of the sidereal 185 1, 76 | heaven; the sensible soul, by means of the light of ~the crystal 186 1, 76 | the intellectual soul by means of the light of ~the empyrean 187 1, 76 | not because this is the means of union, but because of 188 1, 76 | Nevertheless the breath is a means of moving, as the first ~ 189 1, 76 | separate ~existence, many means of connection would have 190 1, 77 | acquire imperfect health by means of a few ~remedies; better 191 1, 77 | acquire perfect health by means ~of many remedies; and better 192 1, 77 | although by many and various means; and in this it falls short 193 1, 77 | the soul are ~performed by means of corporeal organs; as 194 1, 77 | an ~accident through the means of another. The same thing 195 1, 37 | follows that so far as love means only the relation of the 196 1, 37 | speaking of charity as it means the ~divine essence, as 197 1, 37 | importing a sign, so that it means, ~"the Holy Ghost is the 198 1, 37 | is taken essentially, it means that the Father ~and the 199 1, 37 | taken in a notional sense it means nothing else ~than "to spirate 200 1, 37 | proceeding; since "to speak" means to produce a word.
