    Post What does this sentence means ??

    What does this sentence means : The programmist downplays the importance of humility?

    Here is the additional information for contextual reference :

    We might call this kind of philosopher a “programmist” or “anti-skeptic“, since the programmist downplays the importance of humility, and is more interested in characterizing herself in terms of the other virtues like philosophical rigour.

    They don't consider humility to be very important.

    Remember to remove the "s" from the verb after "does".

    Actually, Alex, nobody was asking for a definition of the word 'sentence', but for the meaning of a specific one.
