Whereas the Summa Halensis saw natural law as a created
order as such that is applicable to all beings according to
the view of Ulpian, Albert the Great refuses to take account
of any thing other than human reason: man is man for no
other reason than his possession of intellect. The research
of Aloysius Obiwulu points out in a considerable way what is
at stake in this decision of Albert, which was transmitted
to Thomas Aquinas and all subsequent political thinkers.
Natural law is concerned about man himself to the extent
that by his reason, he has innate in him the seeds of all
juridical order, exactly as he possesses in himself the
principles of geometry and metaphysics.

The full merit of this book of Aloysius Obiwulu is this: to
show that other utterances of law are possible and by that
to be able to re-evaluate the present and to turn toward the
future with determination and lucidity.
