1877 Excerpt: ...Koi avr Ka al npaeis K.t.x. It has either a moral
aspect (marked by the characteristic (naiverov; on praise and
blame, approbation and disapprobation, as characteristic of virtue
and vice, see Introd. on eiraivos, Append. B, p. 212, seq.), what
is right and noble, an end in itself, 81' avro; or is physical and
sensual, what is beautiful, in which pleasure always accompanies
that which is otherwise good. The ugly may be good in the sense of
useful, but gives no pleasure. Virtue therefore must of necessity
be tcaXov, because it comes under the first definition of it, it is
good in itself, beneficial to the individual and to society, and
also has the stamp and seal of general 'approbation'. 4. apfrij The
definition of virtue here given compared with the celebrated one of
Eth. Nic. II 6, init., and the detailed treatment of the list of
virtues and the meagre and incomplete account here given of them,
contrasted with the elaborate and ingenious analysis of them in the
third and fourth books of the same work, is a most striking
illustration of the difference between the point of view and method
of treatment in the popular Rhetoric and comparatively scientific
Ethics. For example, the definition here given coincides in no
single point with that of the Ethics. It regards virtue solely on
the side of its usefulness, probably because this feature of it is
likely to produce the greatest effect upon the popular mind.
Instead of a cjis it is a mere hivapus, an undeveloped faculty or
power--this is most expressly denied in Eth. N. 11 4,1106 a 5, imeu
