Description

The burgeoning science of heroism continues to evolve and illuminate the myriad ways that heroes are created and transform society. This volume sheds light on a set of core concepts about heroism. Adopting a multidisciplinary perspective, the authors of this volume—all first year students at the University of Richmond—provide a compelling analysis of the genesis of heroism, the psychological underpinnings of heroism, and the sublime nature of heroism.

Among the core concepts investigated in this volume are heroic transformation, the hero’s journey, heroic loyalty, heroic underdogs, repudiation, paradoxical heroism, narcissism, heroic suffering, and the archetypal battle between good and evil.
