Latin term or phrase: summun bonum
I believe this phrase is in Latin, maybe Greek, I don't know. I would like to have it translated for a presentation that I have to give for a college class I am taking. Thank you for your assistance!

Explanation:
Summum bonum means the highest or greatest good. The formula is in Latin, but the concept is taken from Greek philosophy. Throught the centuries, many philosophers have asked themselves this question: what is the "summum bonum"? Answers varied: Knowledge, God, Metaphysics, etc.
