With its roots in Ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, the natural law tradition of morality and jurisprudence was refined and systematized by scholastic thinkers, most notably Thomas Aquinas, and is still relevant today. This essay concentrates on the core tradition of natural law theory, describing its fundamentals and paying special emphasis to its consequences for politics and the law, as well as its relationship to the social and behavioral sciences.
