Quid tum fuerit in causa, quid sit down postea consecutum, quomodo legem intellegere conveniat, subterfugit dicere, neque a vestigio scripti recedit, sed nuda recitatione contenta est. Nos neque omnibus personis neque omnibus causis scriptam esse legem, et iuveni iustas ac necessarias recedendi causas, et, cui rei semper ius satis plenum est, bonum animum fuisse, postremo non hoc esse deserere contendimus, atque eo causam demittimus, ut non take a seat absolvendus adulescens nisi etiam laudandus. 576 the daddy follows, it's transparent, a number of certain traces of reasoning, which he artfully weaves in the course of the complete plea: 1. there are exceptions to the legislations (quomodo legem intellegere conveniat; neque omnibus personis neque omnibus causis scriptam); 2. the son was once justified, even forced by means of necessity to return to his father (quid tum fuerit in causa; iuveni iustas ac necessarias recedendi causas); three. the son acted from sturdy factors (bonum animum); four. what the son did can't be characterised as desertion (non hoc esse deserere); five. for what he did, the son merits to be praised, not only to be acquitted from the cost (quid sit down postea consecutum; non take a seat absolvendus adulescens nisi etiam laudandus). also, correct in the beginning of the partitio he intimates that it's at the least questionable even if it used to be his spouse who used to be the dad or mum in misery. As Zinsmaier rightly observes, basically the 1st of those arguments belongs appropriately to the prestige scripti et voluntatis: it's the just one which explicitly mentions the law’s goal by means of declaring that it used to be no longer intended for all individuals and all instances: there has to be exceptions. 577 The fourth argument additionally considers the wording of the legislations, yet this time in shut reference to the case to hand. the daddy defines deserere as opem non ferre [“refusing to assist”] in order that he can argue that what his son did can't be outlined as deserere: in truth he abandoned neither father or mother, for he rescued his father to aid his mom. 578 This procedure stems from the prestige finitionis, which goals at defining the phrases hired in a legislation so one can ensure no matter if a specific act hotels lower than it. 579 the 3 different arguments, which contain the son’s causes and disposition, all inn lower than the prestige qualitatis and its subspecies. 580 The assertion that the son truly deserved compliment falls lower than qualitas absoluta, a standing used to assert specific act isn't really punishable yet, to the contrary, justified or perhaps honorable. 581 the opposite arguments hire a variety of species of qualitas adsumptiva, a substatus within which an act isn't condoned in line with se, yet justified at the foundation of mitigating situations. The younger man’s stable intentions (bonus animus) may well might be inn lower than purgatio, in keeping with quam eius, qui accusatur, non factum ipsum, sed voluntas defenditur: the act is probably not excusable in itself, however it was once kept away from unwell intentions and taken approximately through lack of awareness, necessity, or undesirable success. 582 The iustas ac necessarias recedendi causas might be subsumed less than no fewer than 3 prestige.
