From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The term quality refers to how good something or somebody is. In the case of a person this is considered in a particular context, such as worker, student, sportsperson, etc. The term is often used in opposition to quantity. In science, the work of Aristotle focused on measuring quality; whereas, the work of Galilei resulted in a shift towards the study of quantity. Like culture, quality is a word that carries its own value judgment, it can mean any characteristic, but without qualifier, it means something good.
Quality may refer to:
- Quality (philosophy), an attribute or a property
- The Man Without Qualities by Austrian writer Robert Musil.
