That Radiant Selfishness of Soul: the Virtue of Pride by Ben Bayer
Objectivism regards pride as a crucial moral virtue. But what does it mean to act with pride, as opposed to feeling pride or achieving self-esteem? This talk will identify and elaborate on the central concern of the virtue of pride (the creation of one’s own character) and explore the chief practical requirements of the virtue, drawing on crucial examples from the plot of Atlas Shrugged.
Recorded live as part of The Objectivist Conference on August 28, 2021.
