Natural Law

Read the excerpt from The Suma Theological by Thomas Aquinas and On the Duty of Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau found at the end of chapter 9. Analyze Aquinas’ argument that there is a higher law than human law. If there is a higher moral law, is it necessary to bring in a God to explain or validate this higher law? Discuss how both Aquinas and Thoreau might answer this question.
