Preface THE following treatise onE thics is divided into three parts Theoretical Ethics, Practical Ethics, and History of Ethics. The first part gives a general outline of ethics, its sphere, and its relation to other sciences. It discusses the various systems of ethics Theistic, I ntuitional, Utilitarian, Evolutionary, andE clectic. It investigates the nature of the good, the relation of law and duty, and the effect of moral evil. The second part treats of virtue, duty, reward, and penalty. The third part traces the history of ethics from Greek ethics, through Roman, Mediaeval, and Modern, down to the present. It is only in the history of ethics, which sweeps over centuries of thought and reveals the moral life of nations, that we can have a clear view of what has been done in this great field of investigation. Whenever practicable, the historical matter has been drawn from original sources.
