This work reconstructs humility by tracing a consistent but often unstated definition: humility is a virtue of self-knowledge acquired by the practice of other-centeredness.

Reviews

“In following Aquinas the way Aquinas followed Aristotle, Prof. Fullman’s book invites us to engage in this personal, communal [acquisition of moral truth] in our late or post-modern context. And the discovery is rewarding. We come to know the vicissitudes of humility, with wisdom and humor. . . Humility, says Fullham, ‘used to be an important virtue.’ In this splendid and persuasive book, it still is.” – Prof. William R. O’Neill, Jesuit School of Theology
