Of the Division of Life Into Active and Contemplative
We must next consider active and contemplative life. This consideration will be fourfold:
- Of the division of life into active and contemplative;
- Of the contemplative life;
- Of the active life;
- Of the comparison between the active and the contemplative life.
Under the first head there are two points of inquiry:
- Whether life is fittingly divided into active and contemplative?
- Whether this is an adequate division?
