This chapter examines Green's views about the link between self-realization and a common good. He believes that full self-realization can take place only in a community of ends in which each person cares about others for their own sakes. Green suggests that this concern for others, at least for those within one's immediate circle, is given or natural.

Keywords: T. H. Green; self-realization; personal good; concern
