When we describe someone as “modest” we seem to be paying them a compliment, acknowledging a morally admirable character trait. But what is it that makes modesty a virtue, and what exactly is modesty? In this talk, Professor Emer O’Hagan (Department of Philosophy) will discuss several competing accounts of modesty, and some objections to them.
Philosophy in the Community is a lecture and discussion series organized by the Department of Philosophy. It is in place as a public service so that we may share the rewards and pleasures of philosophical reflection with the members of our community. Philosophical thinking, reading and analysis is part of the life well-lived.
This series is free, no registration is needed. No philosophical background is required; intellectual curiosity is. Coffee provided.
