Thus in the Christian tradition the ideal of ultimate happiness has often been sought in the enjoyment of the loving fellowship of God. A proponent of this ideal is St Augustine. 4). But what is this chief good for human existence? It must be something ‘than which there is nothing better’ and at the same time something ‘which cannot be lost against the will. For no one can feel confident regarding a good, which he knows can be taken from him, although he wishes to keep and cherish it. 5). 18). 37).

Here personhood has two sides to it. On the one hand, a person is a being who is treated in a personal way. I am a person to the extent that others treat me as a person and do not use me as an object, as an end in myself and not as a means to be used for some further end. Here Martin Buber14 distinguishes two fundamental attitudes we adopt in relation to our environment: ‘I-thou’ and ‘I-it’. Persons differ from objects because we adopt an ‘I-thou’ attitude towards them and not the ‘I-it’ attitude we adopt towards objects.
