Common sense is not so common. It’s a misnomer. Rather, it should be called “Applied wisdom” which is innate or learned from countless mistakes, “Applied wisdom” being the ability to meet a compromise between two or more virtues e.g. an example of “Applied wisdom” would be neither being brutally honest (Honesty virtue) or being completely dishonest (Dishonesty vice). This imperfect world requires Applied wisdom.
