Jia Her of 3E6 has been elected to front this topic for her class. At first glance the topic seems really difficult. However, as some of the class found out today, the issue can be made simpler by breaking it into a set of dichotomies. For example- contrast the present with the past, virtue with vice, humility with pride. This makes it easier to examine the topic. Ultimately, is it possible to conclude that while humilty is presently a handicap, it is still viewed as a virtue to aim for? Try to think of examples to illustrate the various points. Do you have links to any stories or jokes that may be relevant? Do post them with your comments.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
