Whereas the Summa Halensis saw natural law as a created order as such that is applicable to all beings according to the view of Ulpian, Albert the Great refuses to take account of any thing other than human reason: man is man for no other reason than his possession of intellect. The research of Aloysius Obiwulu points out in a considerable way what is at stake in this decision of Albert, which was transmitted to Thomas Aquinas and all subsequent political thinkers. Natural law is concerned about man himself to the extent that by his reason, he has innate in him the seeds of all juridical order, exactly as he possesses in himself the principles of geometry and metaphysics.
