    under the name

    The following paragraph described about character of children which the philosophers and educators have tried to give definition to the word "character", but the ideas remain vague.

    "There is no ultimate concept acceptable to all. Yet, intuitively, everyone knows the importance of that sum total of qualities that goes universally under the name."


    What is the meaning of "under the name"? Does it refer to the word "character"?

    Re: under the name

    It's here. I think 'under the name' implies the name of a person.

    Re: under the name

    Thank you, Bennevis, but I want njt to get into the habit of citing the source and author of quoted text.

    How much of this lengthy document do we have to read before we get to the paragraph in question?

    It's halfway through. The first paragraph in chapter VIII.

    Actually there are two Chapter VIII, the one in question is the second. :)

    No, it doesn't. It means "under the name of 'character'".

    Re: under the name

    Yeah - I've thought of that too. Not a very well written text, mind you.
