Intellectual-humility

Templeton Foundation Humility Presentation posted

Mark Alfano, with whom I am currently collaborating on several projects invited me last year to become a contractor on a project to develop a behavioral measure of Intellectual Humility, the character trait Humility is a “virtue,” a trait that is desirable and commonly expected to be present in a “good person.” Aristotle and later Thomas Aquinas divide virtues into two types: moral (for example, bravery) and intellectual. Humility is among the latter.
