Each positive virtue has at least two corresponding negative aspects or vices. 2. Latin: virtus, Ancient Greek: ἀρετή “arete”) a trait or quality that is deemed to be morally good and thus is valued as a foundation of the principle of collective and individual greatness. The Golden Mean is the middle path between the two extremes (vices) on the continuum. 3. The most pro-survival individual qualities for the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
