A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury. The latter case, it is true, requires a much more cautious exercise of compulsion than the former.

Yet there are many cases clear enough and grave enough to justify that exception. (p. 17)

Three conceptions are perpetually turning up at every point in every theory of , and in the most rounded systems they occur in connection with one another.

Third is the conception of mediation, whereby a first and second are brought into relation.
