definition of kind

The word kind we use it recurrently in our language to refer to that individual who has a calm, gentle character and stands out for his charity and kindness in the way of acting and behaving, especially towards his neighbor.

The Goodness allows us to refer to the quality of good, courtesy in acting and the natural inclination that someone has to do good to others.

Philosophically speaking, the good is the value that we attribute to the action of a person and that basically makes it lean naturally, spontaneously, to the realization of the good and to promote all that is desirable and good for the people around him because There is precisely a vision and understanding of the context that facilitates doing this.

The good will always imply something correct, good and that will produce satisfaction in the other person, on the other hand, the bad, the bad, will trigger pain and suffering. Never will a caring individual cause suffering in another or in the community.

The concept that is opposed to that of kindness is that of bad, which precisely refers to that person who stands out for his evil and for the absence in his personality and acting of positive qualities or virtues.

Historically, both different cultures and religions, especially the Jewish and Christian They have created the confrontation between good and evil, between good and bad, and obviously in this sense they have promoted fighting evil and proclaimed how great the realization of good makes us feel. Even Christianity speaks of the cultivation of virtues because that is the way to achieve good, goodness without fissures.

Likewise, the concept of goodness has been closely associated with humanitarian action, that is, with direct aid to those causes considered as elementary, such is the case of combating poverty, hunger, lack of education, among the most prominent . And by extension, those people who have made their lives a cult of these issues are called and considered as kind.
