Abstract: The text of Aquinas' action theory, ST, I-II, 1-21, has traditionally been interpreted in Roman Catholic Moral Theology with an emphasis upon the object of human action as the main focal point. This study attempts to demonstrate, on the basis of the structure and division of the text, that the priciple emphasis given by Aquinas to determine the meaning and moral status of human activity is not what is chosen as behaviour but rather the end that is embraced in the intention of the acting person.
