A similar definition can be given for prudence, of
which I have spoken in an early chapter. But in
this part we are considering temperance and self-control and related virtues. Accordingly, the
properties which, as we found, are peculiar to prudence were discussed in their proper place, while
those are to be discussed now which are peculiar to
these virtues of which we have for some time been
speaking and which relate to considerateness and to
the approbation of our fellow-men.
