Someone please help the swiss cheese that my brain has become.  In  ancient 
greece thtere was a word that meant roughly "virtue" which actually  meant that 
something functioned according to its intended purpose -- an arrow  which 
flew from a bow and shot something was behaving "virtuously", while a  pitcher 
which was intended to pour water, if it struck the same animal and klled  it, 
was not.  Someone please help?
