[9] Now one of their arguments proves that Folly combined with Unrestraint is a virtue. It runs as follows: if a man is foolish and also unrestrained, owing to his unrestraint he does the opposite of what he believes that he ought to do; but he believes1 that good things are bad, and that he ought not to do them; therefore he will do good things and not bad ones.

1 Sc., because he is foolish.
