Courage

Courage is the choice and willingness to confront agony, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain, death or threat of death, while moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, scandal, discouragement, or personal loss; the classical virtue of fortitude is translated "courage", but includes the aspects of perseverance and patience. In the Western tradition, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers, Plato, Aristotle and Kierkegaard. In the Hindu tradition, mythology has given many examples of bravery and courage. Ramayana and Mahabharatha have in them many examples of both physical and moral courage. In the Eastern tradition, some thoughts on courage were offered by the Tao Te Ching. More courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology. Daniel Putman, a professor at the University of Wisconsin - Fox Valley, wrote an article titled "The Emotions of Courage". Using a text from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics as the basis for his article, he discusses the relationship between fear and confidence in the emotion of courage.

He states that "courage involves deliberate choice in the face of painful or fearful circumstances for the sake of a worthy goal". With this realization, Putman concludes that "there is a close connection between fear and confidence". Fear and confidence in relation to courage can determine the success of a courageous goal, they can be seen as the independent variables in courage, their relationship can affect how we respond to fear. In addition, the confidence, being discussed here is self-confidence. Putman states that: The ideal in courage is not just a rigid control of fear, nor is it a denial of the emotion; the ideal is to judge a situation, accept the emotion as part of human nature and, we hope, use well-developed habits to confront the fear and allow reason to guide our behavior toward a worthwhile goal. When trying to understand how fear and confidence play into courage, we need to look back at Aristotle's quote. According to Putman, Aristotle is referring to an appropriate level of fear and confidence in courage.

"Fear, although it might vary from person to person, is not relative and is only appropriate if it "matches the danger of the situation". The same goes for confidence in that there are two aspects to self-confidence in a dangerous situation. "a realistic confidence in the worth of a cause that motivates positive action." "knowing our own skills and abilities. A second meaning of appropriate confidence is a form of self-knowledge."Without an appropriate balance between fear and confidence when facing a threat, one cannot have the courage to overcome it. Putman states "if the two emotions are distinct excesses or deficiencies in either fear or confidence can distort courage." As noted above, an "excess or deficiency of either fear or confidence, can distort courage". According to Putman, there are four possibilities: "Higher level of fear than a situation calls for, low level of confidence". Someone like this would be perceived as coward. Someone like this would be perceived as rash; the third possibility can occur if someone experienced a traumatic experience that brought about great anxiety for much of their life.

The fear that they experience would be inappropriate and excessive. Yet as a defensive mechanism, the person would show excessive levels of confidence as a way to confront their irrational fear and "prove" something to oneself or other". So this distortions could be seen as a coping method for their fear. "Excessively low level of fear and low level of confidence." For the last possibility, it can be seen as hopelessness. Putman says this is similar to "a person on a sinking ship". "This example is of a person who has low confidence and low self-regard who loses all fear". The distortion of low fear and low confidence can occur in a situation where an individual accepts what is going to happen to them. In regards to this example, they lose all fear because they know death is unavoidable and the reason it is unavoidable is because they do not have the ability to handle or overcome the situation. Thus, Daniel Putman identifies fear and courage as being intertwined and that they rely on distinct perceptions: "the danger of the situation" "the worthiness of the cause" "and the perception of one's ability."

The early Greek philosopher Plato set the groundwork for how courage would be viewed to future philosophers. Plato's early writings found in Laches show a discussion on courage, but they fail to come to a satisfactory conclusion on what courage is. During the debate between three leaders, including Socrates, many definitions of courage are mentioned. "…a man willing to remain at his post and to defend himself against the enemy without running away…""…a sort of endurance of the soul…" "…knowledge of the grounds of fear and hope..." While many definitions are given in Plato's Laches, all are refuted, giving the reader a sense of Plato's argument style. Laches is an early writing of Plato's. In this early writing, Plato is still developing his ideas and shows influence from his teachers like Socrates. In one of his writings, The Republic, Plato gives more concrete ideas of what he believes courage to be. Civic courage is described as
