Abstract:   (275 Views)
It seems natural to think that Dehqan-e Fadakar did something beyond his duty. But this judgment requires explanation. How come there are most reasons for an action and thus it is praiseworthy, but it is not obligatory? Discussions about supererogation start with this question but go further beyond that. In this short note for Farsi readers, I mention some aspects of the problem of supererogation. Furthermore, I also mention “The Cautionary Account of Supererogation” recently proposed based on the ethical work of Miskawayh (d. 1030). So, I discuss the importance of the problem and mention some neglected resources for further explanation.
