Reasonable Self-Esteem, Second Edition
A Life in Meaning, 2017

Analytical Table Of Contents


In a book that stands in striking contrast to “pop psychology” books on self-esteem, a philosopher explores self-esteem from the position of the “reasonable person.” In Keshen’s view, self-esteem that
derives from such external factors as opinions of others, social condition, comparisons with others, or inherited traits is easily shaken by negative events and changes in one’s life. Using rigorous analysis
to develop his argument, he espouses a self-esteem that is grounded in individual achievement. Reasonable Self-Esteem will be of particular interest to those with a background in moral philosophy and philosophical argument. Canadian Book Review Annual
