Humanity

Humanity is a virtue related to the basic ethics of altruism derived from the human condition. It also symbolises human affection and compassion towards each other. Humanity differs from the mere justice in this  there is a level of altruism to individuals included in humanity more so than the fairness originates in justice. That is, humanity, and the acts of affection, altruism, and social intelligence are typically individual strengths while fairness is generally expanded to all. Humanity may be classed as one of six virtues that are consistent across all cultures. The concept drives back to the development of "humane",philosophy through the Renaissance (with predecessors in 13th-century scholasticism stressing a concept of basic human dignity motivated by Aristotelianism) and the concept of humanitarianism in the early modern period, and resulted in modern notions like as "human rights".
