Magnanimity: How to Live with Greatness of Spirit

Share this:

In today’s (as always ad-free) podcast episode, I explore the profound concept of magnanimity and its application to everyday living, drawing inspiration from the teachings of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas. 

Delving into the philosophical roots of magnanimity, I unravel its significance in fostering personal growth, resilience, and compassion in our daily lives.

Drawing inspiration from historical figures and modern examples, I explore how magnanimity — defined as a generous and noble spirit — contributes to living a compassionate life.

“It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses…There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal.” ~C.S. Lewis
