But in the other sciences, since the method of science is not sought as an object or as a goal, it must be presupposed as an instrument serving for the acquisition of the science. And, therefore, in those sciences it would be absurd and difficult to simultaneously seek science and the method of science. And it is about those [sciences], as I have said, that Aristotle spoke. But the fact that in dialectics it is not impossible to simultaneously seek both the method of science as well as science itself is true for the following reason.

In the same vein, the Philosopher himself, in the Ethics, Book 10, Chapter 7, reprehends those who say that it is necessary for us, inasmuch 30 Francisco Suárez: A Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics as we are men, to enjoy human things, and inasmuch as we are mortal, mortal things.
