Thomas Aquinas is a towering figure in classical liberalism and also in the unfoldment of what can be described as a precursor to the divine economy theory. It is true that this philosophical line continues back to Aristotle but the elements and seeds of the divine economy theory go back even further, past Moses and Abraham, as far back as recorded history. Each time epochal civilization advanced it turns out that a fragment of the divine economy theory was there.
At the heart, each and every time, was knowledge gained about how to function as subjective beings along the pathway of social cooperation. This always tantalizing theme was a powerful motive force in the evolution of human civilization.
At present, and predictably in the future, the knowledge gained about how to function as subjective beings along the path of social cooperation will lead to an ever-advancing civilization.
