In Nicomachean Ethics, Book IV, Chapter 3, Aristotle discusses the qualities of a magnanimous (i.e. great-souled) person. A magnanimous person is someone who has genuine pride and authentic self-esteem due to possessing real virtues and accomplishments. According to Aristotle, such a person is very different from a vain person. (A vain person lacks virtue and only has false pride and faked self-esteem.
Describe the most important qualities of character that, according to Aristotle, a magnanimous person has. How do these differ from the qualities of character that, according to Aristotle, a vain person has? Use specific examples from the text.
(In answering this question, working through Book IV, Chapter 3 again might be helpful. 1124a-1124b should be especially helpful in contrasting the magnanimous person with the vain person. The editor’s notes on magnanimity in the back of the book, which start on page 220, may be useful as well.
