As far as I am aware, pride is ὑπερηφανία. But I recently came across someone translating φίλαυτος (self-love) as pride. Are there more technical definitions of φίλαυτος available (eg, is it considered a passion, a sin, what?), are there any other similar Greek terms that may also be translated as pride in patristic material, and how do these (especially φίλαυτος) differ from ὑπερηφανία? Thanks.
