Person and Natural Law is an important treatise on the philosophical understanding of natural law and its role in human existence. In this book, Professor Krapiec explains natural law analogically and argues that an individual is capable of interpreting and understanding the natural arrangement of things, of what is human good and evil. It is precisely this human capacity to understand good and evil, as well as the realization (in one's own behaviour) of the discerned good, that reveals the existence of natural law within an individual and among people. The individual's rational choice to «do good» is the analogical expression of natural law.
