And he distinguishes between 'the sense of justice' and 'the love of mankind' by saying that 'the latter is supererogatory, going beyond the moral requirements and not invoking the exemptions which the principles of natural duty and obligation allow' (476).

The consequences of their agreement are to be worked out on this basis.
