The series of means and ends either stretches out indefinitely, or it must terminate in some desired object or objects which are ends in themselves.Again we sometimes call a thing good because it possesses completely, or in a high degree, the perfections proper to its nature, as a good painting, good respiration.That is to say, it is good because it is an efficient means to obtain a desired result.The result, in turn, may be desired for itself, or it may be sought as a means to some ulterior end.
This view leads to the inference that the origin of evil lies beyond the control of God.
Being and the good are, then, objectively the same, every being is good, every good is being.
Our concepts, being and good differ formally: the first simply denotes existence ; the second, existence as a perfection, or the power of contributing to the perfection of a being.
Now in all these locutions the word conveys directly or indirectly the idea of desirability.
The merely useful is desired for the end towards which it is employed; the end is desired on its own account.
