Hi, Can anyone explain to me what Casuistry is and how you would link this to natural law/Aquinas.

The noun CASUISTRY has 2 senses:

1. argumentation that is specious or excessively subtle and intended to be misleading
2. moral philosophy based on the application of general ethical principles to resolve moral dilemmas

Natural law or the law of nature has been described as a law whose content is set by nature and is thus universal As classically used, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature and deduce binding rules of moral behavior.

I think it is about resolving a problem in a normal way :)
