1 1, 2 | the ~direction of a higher agent, whatever is done by nature 2 1, 3 | Thirdly, because every agent acts by its form; hence 3 1, 3 | manner in which it is an agent. ~Therefore whatever is 4 1, 3 | primarily and essentially an agent must be ~primarily and essentially 5 1, 3 | form. Now God is the first agent, since He is ~the first 6 1, 3 | to its cause; for every agent ~produces its like. But 7 1, 3 | species), or by some exterior agent - as heat is caused in water ~ 8 1, 3 | either by some exterior agent or by its ~essential principles. 9 1, 4 | is merely potential, an agent, as such, is in the state ~ 10 1, 4 | formality, if it is a univocal agent - as when man reproduces 11 1, 4 | degree, if it is an equivocal agent - thus in the sun is ~the 12 1, 4 | such is imperfect, and an agent as ~such is perfect; still 13 1, 4 | agents. For since every agent reproduces itself so ~far 14 1, 4 | itself so ~far as it is an agent, and everything acts according 15 1, 4 | resemble the form of the agent. If ~therefore the agent 16 1, 4 | agent. If ~therefore the agent is contained in the same 17 1, 4 | reproduces ~man. If, however, the agent and its effect are not contained 18 1, 4 | Therefore ~if there is an agent not contained in any "genus," 19 1, 4 | reproduce the form of the agent, not, that is, so as to ~ 20 1, 4 | participate in the likeness of the agent's form according to the 21 1, 5 | first among causes, since an agent does not act except for 22 1, 5 | for some ~end; and by an agent matter is moved to its form. 23 1, 5 | both of which move the agent to act; secondly, the action 24 1, 5 | secondly, the action of ~the agent moving to the form; thirdly, 25 1, 6 | certain ~likeness to the agent, since every agent makes 26 1, 6 | to the agent, since every agent makes its like; and hence 27 1, 6 | its like; and hence the ~agent itself is desirable and 28 1, 6 | Him as ~from a univocal agent, as shown above (Q[4], A[ 29 1, 6 | A[2]); but as from an agent ~which does not agree with 30 1, 7 | of the Creator; for no ~agent acts aimlessly. Hence everything 31 1, 8 | Further, the more powerful an agent is, the more extended is 32 1, 8 | as an accident, but as an agent is present to that upon ~ 33 1, 8 | which it works. For an agent must be joined to that wherein 34 1, 8 | Reply OBJ 3: No action of an agent, however powerful it may 35 1, 8 | another; hence by power the agent is ~related and applied 36 1, 8 | thing; thus by power an agent may be ~said to be present 37 1, 13 | it seems that the first ~agent to which all other agents 38 1, 13 | reduced, is an univocal agent: and ~thus what is said 39 1, 13 | receives the ~similitude of the agent not in its full degree, 40 1, 13 | effects ~resides in the agent simply, and in the same 41 1, 13 | actions, the non-univocal agent must precede the ~univocal 42 1, 13 | must precede the ~univocal agent. For the non-univocal agent 43 1, 13 | agent. For the non-univocal agent is the universal cause of 44 1, 13 | men; whereas the univocal agent is not the universal efficient 45 1, 13 | species is not an univocal ~agent; and the universal cause 46 1, 13 | cause. But ~this universal agent, whilst it is not univocal, 47 1, 13 | be called an analogical agent, as all univocal ~predications 48 1, 14 | abides in the ~intelligent agent, and will is in the one 49 1, 14 | an act, ~existing in the agent itself, of something perfect. 50 1, 15 | generation whatsoever. But an agent does not act on account 51 1, 15 | likeness of the form is in the agent, as may ~happen in two ways. 52 1, 15 | intention of the principal agent, as the order of an army ( 53 1, 16 | of ~health, for here the agent is not univocal. In the 54 1, 17 | the impressions of the ~agent. Hence, for instance, it 55 1, 18 | place, the end moves the agent: and the principal ~agent 56 1, 18 | agent: and the principal ~agent is that which acts through 57 1, 18 | form, but of ~the principal agent, and does no more than execute 58 1, 18 | other kind remain in the agent, as to understand, to sense ~ 59 1, 18 | the perfection not of the agent that moves, but of the thing 60 1, 18 | is the perfection of the agent. Hence, because ~movement 61 1, 18 | this kind is the act of the agent, although movement is an 62 1, 19 | Hence we see that every agent, in so far as it is perfect ~ 63 1, 19 | exists." But every voluntary ~agent acts by reason and pre-election. 64 1, 19 | essence. But God is the first agent. Therefore He acts by His ~ 65 1, 19 | Phys. ii, 49, the natural agent must have the end and the 66 1, 19 | intellectual and voluntary agent must precede the agent that 67 1, 19 | voluntary agent must precede the agent that acts by ~nature. Hence, 68 1, 19 | the character of a natural agent, of which ~the property 69 1, 19 | according to the nature of the agent; and hence as ~long as it 70 1, 19 | nature; for every natural agent has a determinate being. 71 1, 19 | effects proceed from the agent that causes them, in so 72 1, 19 | as they ~pre-exist in the agent; since every agent produces 73 1, 19 | in the agent; since every agent produces its like. Now effects ~ 74 1, 19 | irrationally?" But to a voluntary agent, what is the reason of ~ 75 1, 19 | effect is conformed to the agent ~according to its form, 76 1, 19 | appetites. For a natural ~agent intends not privation or 77 1, 22 | evident thus. For since every agent acts for an end, the ordering 78 1, 22 | causality of the first ~agent extends. Whence it happens 79 1, 22 | that in the effects of an agent ~something takes place which 80 1, 22 | outside the intention of the ~agent. But the causality of God, 81 1, 22 | of God, Who is the first agent, extends to all ~being, 82 1, 23 | actions remaining in the agent, as understanding and willing, 83 1, 23 | thing prepared; and of the agent to action, ~and this is 84 1, 23 | action, ~and this is in the agent. Such a preparation is predestination, 85 1, 23 | predestination, and as an ~agent by intellect is said to 86 1, 23 | must remember that every agent intends to make ~something 87 1, 25 | so God, who is the first agent, is to act. But primary 88 1, 25 | act. Therefore, the first ~agent - namely, God - is devoid 89 1, 25 | be infinite. For in every agent is it found that the ~more 90 1, 25 | that the ~more perfectly an agent has the form by which it 91 1, 25 | The power of a univocal agent is wholly manifested in 92 1, 25 | power of a non-univocal agent does not wholly ~manifest 93 1, 25 | that God is not a ~univocal agent. For nothing agrees with 94 1, 25 | moving another is a univocal agent; wherefore it follows ~that 95 1, 25 | that the whole power of the agent is made known in its motion. 96 1, 25 | however, is not a univocal agent; whence it is not ~necessary 97 1, 25 | remembered that since every agent produces an ~effect like 98 1, 27 | act remaining within the agent. ~This applies most conspicuously 99 1, 27 | remains in the intelligent agent. For whenever we understand, 100 1, 27 | instance, like heat from the agent to the thing made hot. Rather 101 1, 27 | united to the intelligent agent; since the intellect by 102 1, 27 | external, but ~remains in the agent itself. Such an action in 103 1, 27 | understood is in the intelligent agent. Hence, ~besides the procession 104 1, 27 | accomplished within the agent in ~an intellectual nature 105 1, 27 | which remain within the agent. In a nature which is intellectual, ~ 106 1, 27 | an operation ~within the agent, takes place outside the 107 1, 28 | relations of the intelligent ~agent to the object understood; 108 1, 34 | out from the intelligent agent, but an act remaining in 109 1, 34 | an act remaining in the agent. ~Therefore when we say 110 1, 34 | habitude of the ~intelligent agent to the thing understood, 111 1, 34 | effect, ~but abides in the agent - as to know and to will: 112 1, 36 | action is a mean between the agent and ~the thing done, sometimes 113 1, 36 | as proceeding from the agent; and ~in that case it is 114 1, 36 | is the cause of why the agent acts, whether it be a final ~ 115 1, 37 | such a way ~that in the agent itself they import a certain 116 1, 37 | from it, not only as an agent is from its action, but 117 1, 39 | the strong work done by an agent is its strength.~Aquin.: 118 1, 39 | of a form "by" which an agent works; thus we say that 119 1, 41 | assimilated to ~the form of the agent, whereby the latter acts. 120 1, 41 | depend on the ~quality of the agent, but on the agent's will 121 1, 41 | of the agent, but on the agent's will and understanding. 122 1, 41 | distinction of action and ~agent is one of reason only, otherwise 123 1, 41 | not possible. For in every agent, that is properly ~called 124 1, 41 | called power, by which the agent acts. Now, everything that 125 1, 41 | sense in which we call the ~agent a principle, but in the 126 1, 41 | being that by which the agent ~acts. Now the agent is 127 1, 41 | the agent ~acts. Now the agent is distinct from that which 128 1, 42 | is operation, for every agent acts through its form. Consequently 129 1, 42 | one ~on the part of the agent, and the other on the part 130 1, 42 | action. On the ~part of the agent this happens differently 131 1, 42 | of time; for as ~a free agent can choose the form it gives 132 1, 42 | the same happens from the agent not having ~its perfection 133 1, 42 | successive. So, given that an agent, as soon as it exists, begins 134 1, 43 | process flowing from the agent to the ~passive object. 135 1, 44 | 1~OBJ 3: Further, every agent produces its like, and thus, 136 1, 44 | and thus, since every ~agent acts in proportion to its 137 1, 44 | thing ~generated, and the agent cannot be identical (Phys. 138 1, 44 | generated. But God is the ~first agent producing all things. Therefore 139 1, 44 | 1/1~I answer that, Every agent acts for an end: otherwise 140 1, 44 | another from the action of the agent, unless it were ~by chance. 141 1, 44 | chance. Now the end of the agent and of the patient considered 142 1, 44 | the impression ~which the agent intends to produce, and 143 1, 44 | things, however, are both agent and ~patient at the same 144 1, 44 | not belong to the First Agent, Who is agent only, to act 145 1, 44 | the First Agent, Who is agent only, to act for the ~acquisition 146 1, 44 | belongs only to an imperfect agent, which ~by its nature is 147 1, 44 | which ~by its nature is both agent and patient. But this does 148 1, 45 | being from a particular agent, but also the ~emanation 149 1, 45 | effect of the ~principal agent. If therefore it effects 150 1, 45 | effect of the principal agent. Now ~the proper effect 151 1, 45 | action of the ~instrumental agent. So therefore it is impossible 152 1, 45 | the ~contrary resists the agent, inasmuch as it impedes 153 1, 45 | from ~the act which the agent intends to induce, as fire 154 1, 45 | power is required in the agent to reduce the matter ~to 155 1, 45 | power is required in the agent when no ~potentiality pre-exists. 156 1, 45 | power is required in the agent in ~proportion to the distance 157 1, 45 | the power of a natural ~agent, as there is no proportion 158 1, 45 | of things. And as every agent produces its like, the principle 159 1, 45 | which the ~intellectual agent acts; and therefore it is 160 1, 45 | natural things the only agent is the accidental form, 161 1, 45 | or caused by a separate ~agent by way of creation; and 162 1, 45 | properly made by ~the natural agent is the "composite," which 163 1, 45 | and therefore the natural agent not only produces its like ~ 164 1, 45 | imperfect animals, a universal agent ~suffices, and this is to 165 1, 45 | are created by a separate agent. ~However, for the generation 166 1, 45 | perfect animals the universal agent does ~not suffice, but a 167 1, 45 | not suffice, but a proper agent is required, in the shape 168 1, 46 | 1~Reply OBJ 6: The first agent is a voluntary agent. And 169 1, 46 | first agent is a voluntary agent. And although He had ~the 170 1, 46 | difference between a particular agent, that presupposes ~something 171 1, 46 | else, and the universal agent, who ~produces the whole. 172 1, 46 | the whole. The particular agent produces the form, and ~ 173 1, 46 | end. ~Now, a particular agent presupposes time just as 174 1, 46 | time. ~But the universal agent who produces the thing and 175 1, 46 | follows from the ~voluntary agent, according to the form preconceived 176 1, 46 | preconceived and determined by the ~agent, as appears from what was 177 1, 46 | of the action, and every agent must be the principle of 178 1, 47 | either by itself ~or with the agent. Democritus, for instance, 179 1, 47 | things to matter and to the agent together; ~and he said that 180 1, 47 | the intention of the first agent, but from the ~concurrence 181 1, 47 | the intention of the first agent, who is God. For He brought 182 1, 47 | Reply OBJ 1: The natural agent acts by the form which makes 183 1, 47 | only. But the voluntary agent, such as God is, as was 184 1, 47 | It is part of the best agent to produce an effect which 185 1, 47 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: No agent intends material plurality 186 1, 47 | intention of the divine ~agent; forasmuch as for the same 187 1, 48 | and nature and any other agent make what is best in the ~ 188 1, 48 | thus is the action of the agent in the ~patient. And if 189 1, 48 | the idea of injury to the agent in ~himself, whereas the 190 1, 48 | the idea of injury to the ~agent in his operation; and thus 191 1, 48 | opposed to the good of the ~agent, while fault is opposed 192 1, 48 | action. Therefore, since ~the agent is better than the action, 193 1, 48 | more ~perfect good of the agent, since it is the second 194 1, 49 | impelling force; nor does an ~agent fail in its action except 195 1, 49 | causes, we see that the agent, ~the form, and the end, 196 1, 49 | has a cause by way of an agent, not directly, but accidentally.~ 197 1, 49 | principal or the ~instrumental agent; thus the defect in the 198 1, 49 | the ~proper effect of the agent, sometimes by the power 199 1, 49 | sometimes by the power of the agent, ~sometimes by reason of 200 1, 49 | a defect, either of the agent or of the matter. It is 201 1, 49 | power or perfection of the agent when there ~necessarily 202 1, 49 | the form intended by the agent the privation of ~another 203 1, 49 | action of the ~fire, the agent. But this very fact that 204 1, 49 | things. For the natural agent produces the same kind of ~ 205 1, 49 | other evil pre-exists in the agent or in the ~matter, as was 206 1, 49 | caused by the defect of the ~agent. But in God there is no 207 1, 49 | caused by defect of the agent, is not reduced to God ~ 208 1, 49 | was said (A[1]) that some agent inasmuch as it ~produces 209 1, 50 | is not intended by the agent, but only specific ~multiplication, 210 1, 53 | the act of ~an imperfect agent. But the movement which 211 1, 54 | really a medium between the agent and the subject receiving ~ 212 1, 54 | which remains within the agent, is not really a ~medium 213 1, 54 | really a ~medium between the agent and the object, but only 214 1, 54 | of the object with the ~agent. For the act of understanding 215 1, 54 | which remains within the agent, as to ~feel, to understand, 216 1, 54 | action takes place within the agent. It is quite clear ~regarding 217 1, 54 | action that it cannot be the agent's very ~existence: because 218 1, 54 | existence: because the agent's existence is signified 219 1, 54 | something as issuing from the agent into the ~thing done. But 220 1, 55 | is by ~the form that the agent acts. Now in order that 221 1, 55 | but receives from some agent, now one form, now ~another. 222 1, 56 | something separate from the agent, as the ~thing heated is 223 1, 56 | must be united with the agent; just as the sensible object 224 1, 59 | is the act of a perfect agent, as stated in De Anima ~ 225 1, 59 | implanted by ~nature. Only an agent endowed with an intellect 226 1, 60 | something else ~except the First Agent, Who acts in such a manner 227 1, 60 | which remains within the agent, so ~also is it a movement 228 1, 60 | operation; for we behold ~every agent acting naturally for its 229 1, 61 | whatever is produced by any agent, from the very fact of ~ 230 1, 61 | derive their form from any agent. Therefore the angels ~have 231 1, 62 | thereto by a ~supernatural agent. This is what we call the 232 1, 62 | beyond ~the power of the agent working for the end, as 233 1, 62 | beyond the capacity of the agent striving to attain it; wherefore 234 1, 63 | the very ~virtue of the agent, can never fall short of 235 1, 63 | existence comes of the ~agent from which it drew its nature; 236 1, 63 | at once to limp. ~But the agent which brought the angels 237 1, 65 | amount of the power of an agent is measured not only by ~ 238 1, 65 | into act by some composite ~agent. But since the composite 239 1, 65 | But since the composite agent, which is a body, is moved 240 1, 66 | proves imperfection in the agent. ~But God is an agent absolutely 241 1, 66 | the agent. ~But God is an agent absolutely perfect; wherefore 242 1, 70 | which acts in virtue of the agent: and therefore ~since this 243 1, 70 | and therefore ~since this agent is a living substance the 244 1, 70 | life ~in virtue of that agent.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[70] A[ 245 1, 75 | matter to be, and so does the agent; ~wherefore the agent causes 246 1, 75 | the agent; ~wherefore the agent causes matter to be, so 247 1, 76 | intellect remains in the agent, and does not pass into ~ 248 1, 76 | supposing there is one principal agent, and two ~instruments, we 249 1, 76 | can say that there is one agent absolutely, but several ~ 250 1, 76 | there is one principal agent, and one instrument, we ~ 251 1, 76 | we ~say that there is one agent and one action, as when 252 1, 76 | follow that there ~is but one agent and one action: that is 253 1, 76 | intellect; since the same agent according to divers forms ~ 254 1, 76 | of the form by which the agent acts, as heating is according 255 1, 76 | cause of union ~except the agent, which causes matter to 256 1, 77 | substantial form of the agent (for instance, heat compared 257 1, 77 | end is with ~regard to the agent.

But the voluntary agent, such as God is, as was 329 1, 48 | It is part of the best agent to produce an effect which 330 1, 48 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: No agent intends material plurality 331 1, 48 | intention of the divine ~agent; forasmuch as for the same 332 1, 49 | and nature and any other agent make what is best in the ~ 333 1, 49 | thus is the action of the agent in the ~patient.

Therefore, since ~the agent is better than the action, 338 1, 49 | more ~perfect good of the agent, since it is the second 339 1, 50 | impelling force; nor does an ~agent fail in its action except 340 1, 50 | causes, we see that the agent, ~the form, and the end, 341 1, 50 | has a cause by way of an agent, not directly, but accidentally.~ 342 1, 50 | principal or the ~instrumental agent; thus the defect in the 343 1, 50 | the ~proper effect of the agent, sometimes by the power 344 1, 50 | sometimes by the power of the agent, ~sometimes by reason of 345 1, 50 | a defect, either of the agent or of the matter.

But this very fact that 349 1, 50 | things. For the natural agent produces the same kind of ~ 350 1, 50 | other evil pre-exists in the agent or in the ~matter, as was 351 1, 50 | caused by the defect of the ~agent. But in God there is no 352 1, 50 | caused by defect of the agent, is not reduced to God ~ 353 1, 50 | was said (A[1]) that some agent inasmuch as it ~produces 354 1, 51 | is not intended by the agent, but only specific ~multiplication, 355 1, 54 | the act of ~an imperfect agent. But the movement which 356 1, 55 | really a medium between the agent and the subject receiving ~ 357 1, 55 | which remains within the agent, is not really a ~medium 358 1, 55 | really a ~medium between the agent and the object, but only 359 1, 55 | of the object with the ~agent. For the act of understanding 360 1, 55 | which remains within the agent, as to ~feel, to understand, 361 1, 55 | action takes place within the agent. It is quite clear ~regarding 362 1, 55 | action that it cannot be the agent's very ~existence: because 363 1, 55 | existence: because the agent's existence is signified 364 1, 55 | something as issuing from the agent into the ~thing done. But 365 1, 56 | is by ~the form that the agent acts. Now in order that 366 1, 56 | but receives from some agent, now one form, now ~another. 367 1, 57 | something separate from the agent, as the ~thing heated is 368 1, 57 | must be united with the agent; just as the sensible object 369 1, 60 | is the act of a perfect agent, as stated in De Anima ~ 370 1, 60 | implanted by ~nature. Only an agent endowed with an intellect 371 1, 61 | something else ~except the First Agent, Who acts in such a manner 372 1, 61 | which remains within the agent, so ~also is it a movement 373 1, 61 | operation; for we behold ~every agent acting naturally for its 374 1, 62 | whatever is produced by any agent, from the very fact of ~ 375 1, 62 | derive their form from any agent. Therefore the angels ~have 376 1, 63 | thereto by a ~supernatural agent. This is what we call the 377 1, 63 | beyond ~the power of the agent working for the end, as 378 1, 63 | beyond the capacity of the agent striving to attain it; wherefore 379 1, 64 | the very ~virtue of the agent, can never fall short of 380 1, 64 | existence comes of the ~agent from which it drew its nature; 381 1, 64 | at once to limp. ~But the agent which brought the angels 382 1, 66 | amount of the power of an agent is measured not only by ~ 383 1, 66 | into act by some composite ~agent. But since the composite 384 1, 66 | But since the composite agent, which is a body, is moved 385 1, 67 | proves imperfection in the agent. ~But God is an agent absolutely 386 1, 67 | the agent. ~But God is an agent absolutely perfect; wherefore 387 1, 71 | which acts in virtue of the agent: and therefore ~since this 388 1, 71 | and therefore ~since this agent is a living substance the 389 1, 71 | life ~in virtue of that agent.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[70] A[ 390 1, 74 | matter to be, and so does the agent; ~wherefore the agent causes 391 1, 74 | the agent; ~wherefore the agent causes matter to be, so 392 1, 75 | intellect remains in the agent, and does not pass into ~ 393 1, 75 | supposing there is one principal agent, and two ~instruments, we 394 1, 75 | can say that there is one agent absolutely, but several ~ 395 1, 75 | there is one principal agent, and one instrument, we ~ 396 1, 75 | we ~say that there is one agent and one action, as when 397 1, 75 | follow that there ~is but one agent and one action: that is 398 1, 75 | intellect; since the same agent according to divers forms ~ 399 1, 75 | of the form by which the agent acts, as heating is according 400 1, 75 | cause of union ~except the agent, which causes matter to 401 1, 76 | substantial form of the agent (for instance, heat compared 402 1, 76 | end is with ~regard to the agent.

Thus that a person see 434 1, 89 | can create; for the first agent alone ~can act without presupposing 435 1, 89 | Q[75], A[3]): and every agent, that presupposes something 436 1, 90 | A[4]); and ~because the agent must be like its effect, 437 1, 90 | are ~for the action of the agent.
