Of the Mean of Virtue
We must now consider the properties of virtues: and
- the mean of virtue,
- the connection between virtues,
- equality of virtues,
- the duration of virtues. Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
- Whether moral virtue observes the mean?
- Whether the mean of moral virtue is the real mean or the rational mean?
- Whether the intellectual virtues observe the mean?
- Whether the theological virtues do?
