    in the best tradition

    In the best tradition of utilitarian ethics, open access proponents would combine the willingness of scholars to make their research available to others for no payments with the ability of internet technology.


    In the sentence above, does "in the best tradition" mean " in the best condition" am I wrong?

    Re: in the best tradition

    I am not a teacher.

    No, it really means 'in the best tradition'.

    There is an established way of doing things and, 'in the best tradition' refers to that.
