Then are the beneficial ones good, and the harmful ones bad?


And are those beneficial which do some good, and those evil which do some evil?

Now are these the sort you mean—for instance, in the body, the pleasures of eating and drinking that we mentioned a moment ago? Then the pleasures of this sort which produce health in the body, or strength, or any other bodily excellence,—are these good, and those which have the opposite effects, bad?
