about this item

Everyone deplores narcissism, especially in others. The vain are by turns annoying or absurd, offending us whether they are blissfully oblivious or proudly aware of their behavior. But are narcissism and vanity really as bad as they seem? Drawing on philosophy, psychology, literature, history, and popular culture, Simon Blackburn offers an enlightening exploration of self-love, ultimately suggesting that narcissism, vanity, pride, and self-esteem are more complex than they first appear and have innumerable good and bad forms.
