Or we may ~understand a thing to have nothing 4 1, 3 | first ~sense, we cannot understand God's existence nor His 5 1, 5 | indeed, by non-existence we understand not simply those things ~ 6 1, 11 | one"; because we do not understand ~divided things to convey 7 1, 12 | angel. Therefore, if he can understand other intelligible things 8 1, 12 | power, much more can he understand God.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[12] 9 1, 12 | sense cannot be raised up to understand ~incorporeal substance, 10 1, 12 | through the ~intellect we can understand these objects as universal; 11 1, 12 | enable the intellect to understand in the ~same way as a habit 12 1, 12 | see the essence of God, understand the Divine essence, for ~ 13 1, 12 | that one intellect does not understand one and the same thing better 14 1, 12 | really is, does ~not truly understand it, but not if referred 15 1, 12 | understands the greater, can understand the ~least, as is said in 16 1, 12 | whoever understands God, can understand ~all that God does, or can 17 1, 12 | Therefore those who see God understand and are affected successively; 18 1, 12 | all ~at once, forasmuch as understand many things by means of 19 1, 12 | the ~same time, so as to understand by them; as one body cannot 20 1, 12 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: We understand one thing only when we understand 21 1, 12 | understand one thing only when we understand by one ~idea; but many things 22 1, 12 | in the idea of a man we understand "animal" and ~"rational"; 23 1, 12 | in the idea of a house we understand the wall and the ~roof.~ 24 1, 13 | anything in as far as we can understand it. Now it was shown ~above ( 25 1, 13 | essence is above all that we understand about ~God, and signify 26 1, 13 | compound things, so we can understand and express simple eternity 27 1, 13 | describe Him as far as we understand Him.

Now because to understand is a kind of life, after ~ 37 1, 14 | seems that God does not understand Himself. For it is said 38 1, 14 | 1/1 ~OBJ 2: Further, to understand is a kind of passion and 39 1, 14 | Therefore God does not understand Himself.~Aquin.: SMT FP 40 1, 14 | equivocally, according as to ~understand is described as a kind of 41 1, 14 | in De ~Anima iii. For to understand is not a movement that is 42 1, 14 | not His substance. ~For to understand is an operation. But an 43 1, 14 | 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, to understand one's act of understanding, 44 1, 14 | of understanding, is to ~understand something that is neither 45 1, 14 | understanding will be as when we understand our ~act of understanding: 46 1, 14 | is the same thing as to understand. ~Therefore in God to be 47 1, 14 | is the same thing as to understand. But God's ~existence is 48 1, 14 | laid down ~above (A[2]), to understand is not an act passing to 49 1, 14 | form, so in like manner to understand follows on the ~intelligible 50 1, 14 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: To understand is not an operation proceeding 51 1, 14 | is understood; as when we understand our ~act of understanding; 52 1, 14 | be. Therefore He does not understand ~things other than Himself.~ 53 1, 14 | it seems that He does not understand all at once, but ~discourses 54 1, 14 | anything, we turn ourselves to understand something else; while the 55 1, 14 | For many things, which we understand in succession ~if each is 56 1, 14 | considered in itself, we understand simultaneously if we see ~ 57 1, 14 | thing; if, for instance, we understand the parts in the ~whole, 58 1, 14 | by the very fact ~that we understand what man is, were to understand 59 1, 14 | understand what man is, were to understand all that can be ~predicated 60 1, 14 | another. ~Hence when we understand what man is, we do not forthwith 61 1, 14 | is, we do not forthwith understand ~other things which belong 62 1, 14 | which belong to him, but we understand them one by one, ~according 63 1, 14 | this account the things we ~understand as separated, we must reduce 64 1, 15 | Reply OBJ 1: God does not understand things according to an idea ~ 65 1, 15 | the divine ~mind that it understand many things; though it would 66 1, 15 | understood, and this is to understand the ~several types of things. 67 1, 15 | an architect is said to ~understand a house, when he understands 68 1, 15 | Now not only does God ~understand many things by His essence, 69 1, 16 | wills the intellect ~to understand. So then, among things directed 70 1, 16 | in its essence, we cannot understand this unless the affirmative ~ 71 1, 17 | we are properly said to understand a thing when we reduce it ~ 72 1, 18 | FOUR ARTICLES)~Since to understand belongs to living beings, 73 1, 18 | principally to sense or to understand.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[18] A[ 74 1, 18 | live ~is to sense or to understand - in other words, to have 75 1, 18 | remain in the agent, as to understand, to sense ~and to will. 76 1, 18 | that, In God to live is to understand, as before stated (A[3]). ~ 77 1, 18 | In ~this sense we must understand the words of the Apostle 78 1, 19 | that the thinker would ~understand the premisses to be the 79 1, 19 | goodness. Hence, as in God to understand the cause is not ~the cause 80 1, 19 | A[6] R.O. 1 Para. 2/2~To understand this we must consider that 81 1, 19 | words of Augustine we must understand a necessity in ~things willed 82 1, 20 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 3: To understand and to will denote the act 83 1, 22 | and ~higher; for we cannot understand many things simultaneously; 84 1, 23 | predestination; giving us to understand that God gives ~grace to 85 1, 23 | God, and thus we are to ~understand, "Who hath helped the Spirit 86 1, 25 | abundantly than we desire or understand."~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[25] A[ 87 1, 26 | Now in God, to be and to understand are one and the same ~thing; 88 1, 26 | act itself ~which is to understand. If, then, beatitude be 89 1, 27 | intelligent agent. For whenever we understand, by the very ~fact of understanding 90 1, 27 | above all things, we should understand what is said of God, ~not 91 1, 28 | understood. For ~when we understand a stone; that which the 92 1, 31 | of speaking, ~unless we understand another implication, as 93 1, 31 | only true God," we do not understand ~it as referring to the 94 1, 31 | of essence. Hence we must understand that in the text quoted 95 1, 32 | always name a thing as we understand it. Now, our ~intellect 96 1, 32 | related to the Father, we must understand two relations in the Father, 97 1, 34 | xv, 10): "Whoever can ~understand the word, not only before 98 1, 34 | from ~each other; for "to understand" means only the habitude 99 1, 34 | Trin. vi, 11): "By Word we ~understand the Son alone."~Aquin.: 100 1, 34 | Reply OBJ 1: "To be" and "to understand" are not the same in us. 101 1, 34 | But in God "to be" and "to understand" are one and the same: hence 102 1, 34 | Him to be God, since to understand is said of God essentially, ~ 103 1, 34 | different things which we ~understand. But because God by one 104 1, 36 | including a relation, if we ~understand the Holy Spirit as being 105 1, 36 | OBJ 3: In the name Son we understand that relation only which 106 1, 36 | in the ~name "Father" we understand the relation of principle; 107 1, 37 | appears in the word "to understand"; and other words are ~used 108 1, 37 | word." Hence in God, "to understand" is applied only to ~the 109 1, 37 | understanding" and "to understand"; but, on the other hand, 110 1, 37 | Reply OBJ 2: Although to understand, and to will, and to love 111 1, 37 | for it belongs to Him to understand as the word ~proceeding; 112 1, 39 | what is that to ~me, if I understand it rightly? . . . The oneness 113 1, 39 | Father." If ~however, we understand these words not to be in 114 1, 39 | two. And from this we can understand what Augustine means when 115 1, 39 | be excluded, we cannot ~understand the oneness of the union 116 1, 40 | from creatures; as the Jews understand it.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[40] 117 1, 41 | principle ~of act. So, as we understand the Father to be principle 118 1, 41 | and of spirating. But "to understand" and ~"to will" are not 119 1, 42 | Fide ad Petrum i) says: "We understand equality to be in the Father, ~ 120 1, 42 | unchangeable subsisting God. So we ~understand the nature of God to subsist 121 1, 45 | is ~midday. But we must understand that this preposition "from" [ 122 1, 46 | Maker always existed." To understand ~this we must consider that 123 1, 46 | nothing, according to what we understand by the word creation, but 124 1, 47 | unity and simplicity to understand many things, as was shown 125 1, 50 | of its substance. Now to understand is an altogether immaterial ~ 126 1, 51 | every animal. Now since to ~understand is not the act of a body, 127 1, 54 | Whether in the angel to understand is to exist?~Aquin.: SMT 128 1, 54 | seem that in the angel to understand is to exist.

But our soul does not 333 1, 78 | our soul does not always understand: sometimes it ~understands, 334 1, 78 | understands, sometimes it does not understand. Therefore the active ~intellect 335 1, 78 | would always be able to understand when he wished, ~which is 336 1, 78 | both because it ~does not understand everything, and because, 337 1, 78 | those things which it ~does understand, it passes from potentiality 338 1, 78 | which the soul is helped to understand.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[79] A[ 339 1, 78 | and sometimes we do not ~understand, but to the intellect which 340 1, 78 | would follow that we could understand all things ~instantly, since 341 1, 78 | as soon as we ~cease to understand something actually, the 342 1, 78 | intellect, and if we wish to understand that thing anew, we ~must 343 1, 78 | inasmuch as a man is said to understand now, or yesterday, or tomorrow. ~ 344 1, 78 | species, even when it does not understand in ~act.~Aquin.: SMT FP 345 1, 78 | I mean that by which we understand when actually thinking; ~ 346 1, 78 | distinct powers. ~We shall understand this clearly if we consider 347 1, 78 | respective actions. ~For to understand is simply to apprehend intelligible 348 1, 78 | by the same power do we understand ~and reason: and so it is 349 1, 78 | intellect, by which we may understand the higher reason.~Aquin.: 350 1, 78 | mens" [mind]. Lastly, ~to "understand" is to adhere to the formed 351 1, 78 | s very act, which is to understand.

If, ~therefore, in order 356 1, 81 | therefore, in order to understand, the will moves by willing 357 1, 81 | will moves by willing to ~understand, that act of the will must 358 1, 81 | From this we can ~easily understand why these powers include 359 1, 81 | wills ~the intellect to understand. In the same way good is 360 1, 81 | in this way, too, we may understand the ~words quoted (De Spiritu 361 1, 81 | the body (as long as we ~understand priority of nature, and 362 1, 82 | whence we ~say that we understand first principles, which 363 1, 82 | to the same power both to understand and to reason, even ~as 364 1, 82 | the same power, as also to understand ~and to reason, as we have 365 1, 83 | is ~possessed, actually understand, without turning to the 366 1, 83 | means, through the senses, ~understand spiritual things, which 367 1, 83 | this the soul does not ~understand these corporeal things, 368 1, 83 | that the things which we understand must have in themselves ~ 369 1, 83 | the angels."

Wherefore for us to understand actually, the fact ~that 394 1, 83 | are ~phantasms. Thus we understand truth by considering a thing 395 1, 83 | And, therefore, when we ~understand something about these things, 396 1, 83 | state of life whatever we understand, we know by ~comparison 397 1, 84 | Whether one intellect can understand better than another?~(8) 398 1, 84 | that our intellect does not understand corporeal ~and material 399 1, 84 | phantasms.
