Dual prehistory of good and evil.—The concept of good and evil has a dual prehistory; first, in the soul of the ruling tribes and castes.
The good are a caste, the bad a mass like dust. Good and bad are for a time the same as noble and low, master and slave. But the enemy is not considered evil, he can repay. Trojan and Greek are both good in Homer. Not he that does us harm but he that is contemptible is considered
wherever this conception of good and evil rules, the ruination of individuals, their tribes and races, is near.
