The purpose of this Appendix is to supplement the discussion of justice found in the early sections of  the  Enquiry  and to point out certain unique characteristics which distinguish this virtue from other  ones which are usually classified as social in their reference. In the case of benevolence and other  social virtues, the actions which are performed are directed toward a single object, and the  happiness or other benefits resulting from the action are experienced immediately or at least in the  foreseeable future. For example, a parent flees to the relief of his child or a generous man seizes the  opportunity to serve a friend. If the child is rescued or the friend is benefited, the action is regarded  as complete. A virtuous act has occurred, and this judgment has been made quite apart from any  further consequences which may occur at some future date.

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.
