In this webinar, recorded on June 29, 2011, William R Thomas discusses pride as "the first and last of the virtues." Pride connects directly with the radical egoism of the Objectivist ethics. And it sums up the ethics, too, being a commitment to moral excellence. The webinar considers in what sense a proud person is “arrogant.” Is pride competitive? It also looks at why self-esteem requires competence and moral rectitude. One hour and nine minutes in total.
