Is caring about your reputation always a symptom of vanity?

My paper “Caring for Esteem” is having its first outing as a keynote for the “Don’t know, don’t care: 6th WFAP Graduate Conference”. University of Vienna on June 7th 2017. There I defend the view that concern for esteem and reputation can be intellectually virtuous. But it can also be vicious. Vanity is one form of vicious concern for esteem and timidity is another. If you would like to see the powerpoint it is here.
