Abstract

The slight recognition that the idea of obligation to society has received in modern morality has Greek and Roman rather than Christian roots. So, even in the morals of private life - everything in it from generosity, nobility, personal dignity, even a sense of honor - has its origin purely a humanitarian, not a religious part of our education, and these qualities could never evolve from those ethical standards where the only explicitly recognized value is humility
