Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Luis de Molina's theological framework in two sections. The first section explains the genesis of the book De Iustitia et Iure. In doing so it helps understand the way in which Molina's moral reasoning progresses, a way that is neither that of Aquinas, with which we are more familiarized, nor that of our times, but a middle development between both. The book is neither medieval, nor modern. The genesis of the book explains its structure, the way in which a disputatio - the basic unit of argumentation - was developed, and the particularities of this genre in moral theology. The second section, much longer than the first, is an account of Molina's fundamental moral theology. It contains his explanations on law - natural and positive - and others aspects of Molina's fundamental moral theology not explicitly discussed in the work, but present in it.
