Agathology is the study of the nature of good.
Greek  agatho- (good) and logos (discourse),

Agathism recognizes the existence of evil but holds that all things tend toward the good.
A belief in the ultimate triumph of good despite evil means

Agathist:  The meliorist, or forward-looker who believes  that the world and things in general are heading for the better. Thus in things that most people regard as evil or tragic, such as virulent diseases, calamitous earthquakes, or wars, the agathist can find some ultimate purpose. The optimist (in the word's purest sense) sees the present as pretty much for the best; the agathist, less content with the present, nonetheless thinks things are inevitably tending towards good-- "though perhaps not," as one dictionary explains, "along the best road."               
 this definition can be found on p.83 of   


In botany, a genus of plants of the rue family; literally "smelling good".

The only one of these spellings recognized by the Oxford English Dictionary as meaning “shameless” is “barefaced.” Etymologies often refer to the prevalence of beards among Renaissance Englishmen, but beards were probably too common to be considered as deceptively concealing. It seems more likely that the term derived from the widespread custom at that time among the upper classes of wearing masks to social occasions where one would rather not be recognized.
