Quaestio: Is the first principle of moral action to be found in human teleology or in something else?
Following medieval protocols, the disputation will involve precise clarification of the issue, definitions of relevant terms, the teachings of the authorities, and the rational evidences supporting specifically philosophic conclusions.
The faculty discussants, point and counter-point on the argument, are each allotted time for afirmatio, respondeo, andsummatio. After a break for lunch, the convocation of scholars will affirm the dictum ad quaestio.
