ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the contrast of a social science research about the healthy "authentic pride" and the problematic "hubistic pride" in the book "Midnight's Children" by Salman Rushdie. The authors review the extant psychological theory and research on pride's everyday experience and evolutionary functions. The book's characters Saleem and Shiva were used to illustrate the two distinct facets of pride. A brief overview of the literature is given.
