Of the Intellectual Virtues

We now have to consider the various kinds of virtue: and

  1. the intellectual virtues;
  2. the moral virtues;
  3. the theological virtues. Concerning the first there are six points of inquiry:
  4. Whether habits of the speculative intellect are virtues?
  5. Whether they are three, namely, wisdom, science and understanding?
  6. Whether the intellectual habit, which is art, is a virtue?
  7. Whether prudence is a virtue distinct from art?
  8. Whether prudence is a virtue necessary to man?
  9. Whether "eubulia," "synesis" and "gnome" are virtues annexed to prudence?
