Of Honesty

We must now consider honesty, under which head there are four points of inquiry:

  1. The relation between the honest and the virtuous;
  2. Its relation with the beautiful [*As honesty here denotes moral goodness, so beauty stands for moral beauty];
  3. Its relation with the useful and the pleasant;
  4. Whether honesty is a part of temperance?
