In a (not so?) recent episode of the most excellent QI our Mr Fry talked about a word which meant liking a part of something although not liking (detesting?) the whole entity; e.g. liking the martial music of Hitlers Germany but detesting the Nazi regime in its entirety.

Anyone know what the word is I am am looking for?

I have been searching the internet for some considerable time trying to get the answer but without success.

Grateful if someone can help
