Examples

  • Whilst Bentham maintains that pleasures and pains are “addible” so that in any situa - tion the net result is a quantum of either pleasure or pain, Plato argues that although they “both admit of more and less” neither can be subtracted from the other because “the negation of pain will not be the same with pleasure” (Philebus 41, 43).

    Dictionary of the History of Ideas

  • It should however, be borne in mind that the council without the pope has no guarantee of infallibility, therefore the conciliar and the papal infallibilities are not two separate and addible units, but one unit with single or double excellence.
