CAVALCANTE, Tatyana Murer  e  OLIVEIRA, Terezinha. Intenção educacional da ética de Tomás de Aquino no contexto citadino no século XIII. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.02, pp.225-255. ISSN 0102-4698.

The goal here is to consider the ethical conception reasoned out by Thomas Aquinas (1224-5?/1274), beginning with the relationship between knowledge production and social transformation. We selected, for analysis, the topic: “The consequences of human actions on grounds of goodness and malice” from the author’s main work, the Summa of Theology. We will stage this debate in the light of contemporary scholars dealing with the issue, paying attention, in particular, to Le Goff, Lauand and Oliveira. It is our understanding that the ideas developed by Thomas Aquinas conceived of, both in and for the city, confirmed the need for knowledge of, and teaching of, virtues; such virtues being oriented towards social relationships that have personal responsibility implicit in them. We consider that this study may point the way to a debate about ethics suited to the present day.
