  1. John Clarke says:

    Would love to come from South Africa. This country is suffering a succession of leadership crises in politics and corporate governance which can be better understood a contagion of Hubris. But the currency exchange rate is going to make it very costly. Any possibility for sponsorship? I would be happy to contribute my study of Cecil John Rhodes as a text book case of someone who acquired the personality disorder, with devastating consequences. See this article for a taste.,

      Thank you for getting in touch John. Unfortunately, we can’t offer sponsorship. I have passed your article on to Lord Owen who may find Rhodes and interesting candidate for Hubris Syndrome. If you would like to provide a link to your study, we could consider adding it to our list of resources, though I have to say we prefer peer-reviewed work. Regards
