A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Made up of both good and evil.
From Greek agathos (good) + kakos (bad). Ultimately from the Indo-European root kakka-/kaka- (to defecate), which also gave us poppycock, kakistocracy, cacophony, cacology, and cacography. Earliest documented use: 1834.
“When any project dominates your life for a sizeable length of time, let alone the best part of six years, you have to accept the agathokakological nature of the beast.”
Ronan O’Callaghan; Walzer, Just War and Iraq; Routledge; 2016.
