Summary:
Rosmini's Anthropology as an Aid to Moral Science supplements the theory of moral law and obligation described and developed in his Principles of Ethics and Conscience. We cannot apply the theory correctly, he maintains, without intimate knowledge of the subject- the human being- who has to act morally. An anthropology is required to provide accurate information of human nature in its relationship to moral science.
