    Part, Question
1 1, 3 | simple in material things is imperfect and a part of ~something 2 1, 4 | beginnings ~of things seem to be imperfect, as seed is the beginning 3 1, 4 | vegetable life. Therefore God is imperfect.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[4] A[1] 4 1, 4 | But existence seems most imperfect, since it is most universal 5 1, 4 | modification. Therefore God is imperfect.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[4] A[1] 6 1, 4 | material ~principle is most imperfect. For since matter as such 7 1, 4 | potential, and ~thus most imperfect. Now God is the first principle, 8 1, 4 | with us is found to be ~imperfect, cannot be absolutely primal; 9 1, 4 | to pre-exist in a ~more imperfect way, since matter as such 10 1, 4 | since matter as such is imperfect, and an agent as ~such is 11 1, 4 | pre-exist not in a more imperfect, but in a more perfect way. 12 1, 4 | more white; and this is imperfect ~likeness. In a third way 13 1, 7 | everything infinite is ~imperfect, as the Philosopher says; 14 1, 7 | the nature of something ~imperfect; for it is as it were formless 15 1, 10 | now" of time, which is imperfect. Hence the ~expression " 16 1, 13 | divine substance, but in an imperfect manner, even as creatures 17 1, 13 | one signifies Him in an imperfect manner, even as creatures ~ 18 1, 13 | of God, although ~in an imperfect manner; so likewise our 19 1, 13 | creatures in such a way that the imperfect way in ~which creatures 20 1, 13 | substance, ~although in an imperfect manner, it is also clear 21 1, 13 | them ~in a manifold and imperfect manner.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 22 1, 13 | of the creature to God is imperfect, for it ~does not represent 23 1, 14 | anything that belongs to that imperfect mode proper to ~creatures. 24 1, 14 | is an act of ~something imperfect passing from one to another, 25 1, 14 | particular, is to have an imperfect knowledge. Hence our intellect, 26 1, 14 | as ~proceeding from the imperfect to the perfect, as is clear 27 1, 14 | but as ~perfect acts to imperfect; as if I were to compare 28 1, 14 | a perfect number, to the imperfect numbers contained under 29 1, 14 | manifest that by a perfect act imperfect acts can be known not only 30 1, 14 | the essence of God as ~the imperfect to the perfect act. Therefore 31 1, 14 | knowledge of God is not imperfect. Therefore God does not 32 1, 14 | something else only, belongs to ~imperfect knowledge, if that thing 33 1, 18 | called, as the act of an imperfect ~being, i.e. of a thing 34 1, 18 | movement is an act of the ~imperfect, that is, of what is in 35 1, 18 | movement is an act of the imperfect.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[18] A[ 36 1, 19 | other of two things, ~and imperfect, since everything contingent 37 1, 19 | everything contingent is imperfect and mutable.~Aquin.: SMT 38 1, 25 | according as it is deficient and imperfect.

And since the 191 1, 92 | Reply OBJ 1: Everything imperfect is a participation of what 192 1, 92 | representation is perfect or imperfect. Thus likeness ~may be distinguished 193 1, 95 | of the ~perfect from the imperfect (thus matter is for the 194 1, 95 | the sake of form; and the ~imperfect form, for the sake of the 195 1, 95 | natural things; thus the imperfect are for the use of the ~ 196 1, 98 | Everything generated is first imperfect.

Now the ~imperfect operation, which is subject 246 2, 5 | If, however, we ~speak of imperfect happiness, the same is to 247 2, 6 | is twofold; perfect and imperfect. ~Perfect knowledge of the 248 2, 6 | the rational nature. But imperfect knowledge of the end consists 249 2, 6 | to ~gain that end. But imperfect knowledge of the end leads 250 2, 6 | of the end leads to the imperfect ~voluntary; inasmuch as 251 2, 6 | rational nature: whereas the ~imperfect voluntary is within the 252 2, 11 | is twofold: perfect and imperfect.

This is ~clear 255 2, 11 | end already possessed: but imperfect enjoyment is also of the 256 2, 11 | that the act be perfect or imperfect, as compared with the ~actual 257 2, 11 | enjoyment properly speaking, but imperfect, on account of the imperfect ~ 258 2, 11 | imperfect, on account of the imperfect ~way in which it is possessed.~ 259 2, 16 | imperfectly. ~Now every imperfect thing tends to perfection. 260 2, 17 | commands imperfectly. ~Now imperfect command arises from the 261 2, 31 | is ~"the act of something imperfect, i.e. of something existing 262 2, 31 | more of the movement of the imperfect ~in them than in delight. 263 2, 31 | implies movement, ~which is an imperfect act: wherefore sensible 264 2, 33 | ceases. ~But when it is imperfect, then the desire, tending 265 2, 34 | are the acts of something ~imperfect, it would follow that pleasure 266 2, 46 | Damascene's division is ~imperfect, since it takes no account 267 2, 49 | ways: first, as perfect and imperfect within the same ~species; 268 2, 58 | instrument, it will produce ~an imperfect effect, if the instrument 269 2, 58 | resulting ~action will be imperfect: and consequently the principle 270 2, 61 | principal as compared ~to the imperfect: and so those virtues which 271 2, 62 | than a virtue, since it is ~imperfect knowledge. Likewise hope 272 2, 62 | precedes ~form, and the imperfect precedes the perfect, in 273 2, 65 | account whatever, or very imperfect": and Cicero says (Quaest. 274 2, 65 | either as perfect or as ~imperfect.

But it is an imperfect knowledge ~that is of things 285 2, 67 | or unseen. Consequently imperfect knowledge ~belongs to the 286 2, 67 | to prevent some kind of imperfect ~knowledge from being sometimes 287 2, 67 | observe that knowledge can be imperfect in three ways: first, on 288 2, 67 | difference of perfect and ~imperfect knowledge on the part of 289 2, 67 | natures, which being is imperfect in comparison ~with the 290 2, 67 | the medium, perfect and imperfect ~knowledge are exemplified 291 2, 67 | difference of perfect and imperfect knowledge applies to ~opinion, 292 2, 67 | thing cannot be perfect and imperfect in the ~same respect; yet 293 2, 67 | which differ as perfect and imperfect can be ~together in the 294 2, 67 | quite incompatible with imperfect knowledge about the same 295 2, 67 | same medium, perfect and imperfect knowledge ~about two things, 296 2, 67 | one perfect, the other imperfect, e.g. about health and ~ 297 2, 67 | medium is incompatible with imperfect knowledge through one ~and 298 2, 67 | subject is incompatible with imperfect ~knowledge in the same subject. 299 2, 67 | God"; yet this light is imperfect in comparison with the light 300 2, 67 | shall see ~light."

Therefore it ~will be done 303 2, 69 | secondly, by a kind of imperfect inchoation of future happiness ~ 304 2, 69 | future beatitude, and, if imperfect, is a beginning thereof.~ 305 2, 74 | of sin, but is something imperfect ~of that kind. Therefore 306 2, 74 | sin, which is something imperfect in the genus of sin.~Aquin.: 307 2, 75 | is essentially ~something imperfect. Therefore one sin cannot 308 2, 75 | OBJ 2: Sin is something imperfect on account of its moral ~ 309 2, 78 | from them as perfect ~from imperfect. Such is the difference 310 2, 88 | sin, in reference to an imperfect notion of sin, and in relation 311 2, 88 | substance, in reference to the imperfect notion of being. For it 312 2, 88 | reason of the act being ~imperfect, i.e. not deliberated by 313 2, 88 | becomes a habit, is like an imperfect ~thing in the same species; 314 2, 88 | in the same species; thus imperfect science, by being perfected, ~ 315 2, 88 | mortal differ as perfect and imperfect in the ~genus of sin, as 316 2, 88 | above (A[1], ad 1). Now the imperfect can become ~perfect, by 317 2, 88 | the perfect cannot become imperfect, by ~addition; and so a 318 2, 88 | Venial differs from mortal as imperfect from perfect, even ~as a 319 2, 90 | ordained to the whole, as ~imperfect to perfect; and since one 320 2, 91 | Secondly, as perfect and imperfect in the same species, e.g. 321 2, 91 | men, while they were yet imperfect, and another ~more perfect 322 2, 91 | both the perfect and the imperfect: wherefore it is ~one and 323 2, 91 | to which the perfect and imperfect do not stand in ~the same 324 2, 93 | Both ways, however, are imperfect, and to a certain extent 325 2, 93 | inclination thereto, are imperfect; but this ~imperfection 326 2, 96 | lay upon the multitude of ~imperfect men the burdens of those 327 2, 96 | all evil. Otherwise these imperfect ones, being ~unable to bear 328 2, 96 | old bottles," i.e. into imperfect men, "the ~bottles break, 329 2, 97 | advance gradually from ~the imperfect to the perfect.
