The Moral Psychology of Pride, Paperback / softback Book

The Moral Psychology of Pride Paperback / softback

Edited by J. Adam Carter, Emma C. Gordon

Part of the Moral Psychology of the Emotions series


Is it good to be proud? We sometimes happily speak of being proud of our achievements, ethnicities and identities, yet pride is also often described as the most serious of the seven deadly sins.

This edited collection of original essays examines pride from a variety of perspectives in philosophy, psychology, sociology and anthropology. The volume seeks to explore such topics as the nature of pride, its connection to other human emotions, whether it is a virtue or vice (or both), and what role it might play in both our intellectual and moral lives.

Containing diverse voices and viewpoints, this book aims to illuminate the various and complex dimensions of pride.
