Thomas Aquinas on Intellect and Will

“The natural end or final cause of the intellect, with its capacity to grasp abstract concepts and to reason on the basis of them, is to attain truth. The natural end of the will is to choose those courses of action which best accord with the truth as it is discovered by the intellect, and in particular in accordance with the truth about human nature.” ~ Thomas Aquinas in Sententia super Metaphysicam
