Not nearly prideful enough, yet: An epistle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This epistle reflects on the concept of pride in the wake of 11 September 2001 and the devastating response by the US. It calls for a truly communist response that embraces the challenge of sojourning together with an upright carriage. It shows that pride as it is most often manifested today is merely an affectation and a form of revenge. Through embodying philosophy as a way of life, the epistle allows us to see that today’s pride is to be overcome by a sharing sympathetic pride that is prideful enough.
