Anthropology on Humans - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 152
Humans/Citizen/Anthropology/Höffe: Aristotle's definition of the human as a political being by nature is developed [in Thomas Aquinas](1) into the concept of the animal sociale et politicum, the social and political being. (...) [Thomas Aquinas'] view is that the human, both a deficient and a rational being, must take care of his or her own life with his or her own hands and work.
Thomas AquinasVsAristotle/Höffe: With this anthropological argument Thomas Aquinas tacitly makes a revolutionary reassessment of work: he frees it from a double stigma. It neither appears as an activity merely for servants/slaves nor as a punishment for original sin, but is rather assigned to the nature of humans.
