Abstract

There has been significant intellectual fervor over the past two decades on wellbeing and optimal human behaviors. These research trends have been especially reflected in the heightened activity surrounding the study of heroism and heroic leadership over the last decade, spearheaded by world-renowned US psychologist Emeritus Professor Philip Zimbardo. A growing number of leading and emerging researchers across a number of disciplines are discovering the epistemological and empirical value of heroism, giving rise to the nascent field of “heroism science” (Allison, Goethals, and Kramer 2017).
