Chapter 7 – Courtesy

Courtesy, as one of our Twelve Virtues, is more than just being polite. To our knightly forebears, courtesy meant those manners necessary for interaction at a noble court.

So what does it mean to us now? How do manners and etiquette affect our everyday interactions, and how do we apply chivalry to those interactions and our social behaviors? In many ways, this is at the core of our discussions.

Chapter 2, Personal Philosophies

In our second foray into the Knightly Virtues, we discuss and compare our personal philosophies; Ethical Pragmatism and the Social Contract. These are the frameworks that we use to navigate the intricacies of modern life and the lens through which we view chivalric behavior in our modern lives.
