Alexander the Great: narcissist or hero?

A new working paper by Teodoro Garcia (grad student, Department of History, University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley) on Alexander the Great: Narcissist or Hero?
My paper will not focus on the legend of Alexander rather my paper will focus on what motivates a man enough to conquer most of the known world. I will argue that Alexander’s motivations stem from a rather unhealthy self-love or narcissism that was brought on from an early age through a close attachment to his mother, Olympias.
Why is it I find narcissist so plausible?
