This chapter comments on the discussion by Gerhard Seel in Chapter 8. It sympathises with many of Seel's claims, particularly about the practical significance of the Good and about how it can have effects in the sensible world. The author is attracted by his view of what sort of thing the Form of the Good is, so his response will be largely concerned with some points of detail. He raises a number of questions about the steps by which Seel reaches his conclusion.
