Abstract

Of all the virtues Aristotle describes in Nicomachean Ethics(NE), the one presented in NE IV.3, megalopsychia – traditionally translated ”pride” - is the most problematic, and the one it is most easy to make fun of. This paper takes a look at a number of those problematic aspects of this Aristotelian version of pride. The aim is to show that it really — despite appearances — is a reasonable candidate for being part of human excellence.
