How moral judgments as a whole have changed!  The greatest men of the morality of antiquity such as Epictetus knew nothing of the glorification now so common of the spirit of sacrifice of living for others: by current standards of morality we should really call them immoral; for they fought with all their strength for their own ego and against all sympathy for others especially for the sufferings and moral imperfections of others.  Perhaps they would reply to us by saying "If you feel yourselves to be such dull and ugly people by all means think of others more than yourselves.  You will be quite right in doing so"!
