Social Foundations 2 Session 1 1) Why does Aquinas insist that it is wrong to take interest on loans? 2) Why does Aquinas believe that the quality of our intentions matters to the justice of war (rather than, say, the consequences of our actions, alone)? 3) What does Aquinas mean by 'scandal', and how does the idea of scandal figure in his arguments about the differences between law and morality? 1) usury, consumption. Eg. Wine gets destroyed, so cannot be charged … but it is usually for houses to be charged, because they are not consumed. Use is consumption: food and wine. Use does not involve consumption: cant be rented. Is money more like wine or houses? … Aquinas, money should be more like houses. Because it should be consumed in exchange. Charging interest is charging twice for the same object. 2 sorts of objects 1. wine/food use is consumption no possible “rent”, “interest” <Like charging interest for money. .use is consumption> 2. Houses/cars/silver jugs use seperable fromconsumotion possible rent and return 3. money: exchange <assimilated to 1>
