Self‐respect,Megalopsychia,and Moral Education

Journal of Moral Education 27 (1):5-17 (1998)
Abstract Self?respect is widely and rightly considered an important value in moral education. There seems at first sight less agreement on what exactly constitutes self?respect. However, I show that once terminological differences have been set aside, there emerges a substantial concordance of opinion in philosophical circles on the specification of this concept. Unfortunately, this common specification is marred by two major shortcomings. I argue that both these shortcomings can be ameliorated through a synthesis of recent conceptions of self?respect and Aristotle's analysis of his much?neglected ?crown of the virtues?, megalopsy?chia. Finally, I suggest some practical implications of such a synthesis for moral education
