Course Summary

Pride is often condemned as a vice or sin, and indeed – in some moral traditions – the most important or fundamental one of all. Yet it is also seen, in at least some forms, as healthy and virtuous. What is good here and what is bad, and how are they related? Join Dr Douglas Adeney to consider these issues.


About Douglas Adeney

Dr Douglas Adeney lectured in philosophy for many years at Melbourne State College and then the University of Melbourne. Since 2011 he has greatly enjoyed teaching numerous CAE philosophy courses.

A non-academic friend of his was once asked by his wife what Doug did for a living. On hearing that he was a philosopher, she said ‘Oooh, he must be very intelligent … Or is he just weird?’ Come and decide for yourself.
