Humility is a vital aspect of political discussion, social media and self-help, whilst recent empirical research has linked humility to improved well-being, open-mindedness and increased accuracy in assessing persuasive messages. It is also a topic central to research and discussion in philosophy, applied ethics and religious studies.

The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Humility is the first collection to present a comprehensive overview the philosophy of humility, whilst also covering important interdisciplinary topics. Comprising forty-one chapters by an international team of contributors, the Handbook is divided into seven parts:

  • Theories of Humility
  • The Ethics of Humility
  • The Politics of Humility
  • Humility in Religious Thought
  • The Epistemology of Humility
  • The Psychology of Humility
  • Humility: Applications to the Social World.

Essential reading for students and researchers in ethics, epistemology, political philosophy, and philosophy of mind and psychology, this Handbook will also be extremely useful for those in related disciplines such as psychology, religious studies and law.
