This exploration in symbolic interactionist social psychology investigates four aspects of self-esteem related to scholarly and political achievement: hubris and conceit on the one hand, and humility and modesty on the other hand. The study looks at these four aspects through three perspectives: individualism and individuality, big-picture versus small-picture thinking, and tolerance and compromise--which correspond to micro, meso, and macro levels of sociology and history. The author argues that conceit and hubris have come to dominate conversation in scholarship and politics. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
