Aristotle's Virtues:
Vice of Excess: Rashness
the Virtuous Mean: Courage
Vice of Deficiency: Cowardice

I'm just confused.
Would the "Vice of Deficiency" mean the deficiency of the virtuous mean? Meaning is cowardice the deficiency of courage??

OR does the "vice of Deficiency" mean the deficiency of cowardice, meaning that you have too little cowardice.

So I'm confused between does the Vice of Deficiency mean that "you have too little cowardice" OR you have a deficiency of courage which is cowardice?
