Abstracts
The theological elaboration of the notion of a person in the thought of Thomas Aquinas is combined with the acknowledgement of the “nature” of things and the ontological revaluation of the material world, resulting in the perception of the metaphysical (philosophical) notion of a person, which has undoubtedly a worldwide significance for modern thought.
Man, as a natural person, is subjected to “relations of justice” concerning, above all, social life in whose context a person is an outcome of natural legitimacy and defined by his relations. Thus, the supernatural destination of a person as human being is complemented by the practical, social character of a person, as expressed in the field of legal relations and law.
Consequently, the notion of a person in its spiritual and social-legal context becomes a precursor of the modern era and a forerunner of human rights; however, it remains part of the tradition of common good as expressed in Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
