Hume concludes this section by stating that besides all these agreeable qualities, "there is a  manner,  a grace, an ease, a genteelness, an I know-not-what, which some men possess above  others, which is different from external beauty and comeliness, and which, however, catches our  affections almost as suddenly and powerfully." Sections VII and VIII of the  Enquiry  have to do with those qualities of action which are immediately  agreeable either to ourselves or to others. These are included because there are certain qualities of  action which are generally recognized as good quite apart from their usefulness in satisfying the  needs of people at some future time. They are good because of the immediate pleasure and  agreeableness which characterizes the experiences.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
