Morality and ethics shape our lives in a plethora of ways. It affects how individuals act on a daily basis, interact with one another, and—most tellingly—act when faced with important decisions that could influence culture and history.

From the rage of Achilles to Priam's subservient pleadings for Hector's body, from the conceit of King Lear to the meekness of Cordelia, from the terribilità of Michelangelo's Moses to the earthy nobility of Van Gogh's Potato Eaters, from the detachment of Lao Tzu to the powerful assertions of Nietzsche, and from the pride punished in Dante's Purgatory to the pride celebrated by Michael Eric Dyson; writers, thinkers, and artists through the ages have addressed fundamental questions about the nature of pride and humility.
