solipsistic -- it's all about me

From Maureen Dowd's column in yesterday's Times:
"In two days worth of solipsistic rants, the man of faith committed at least four of the seven deadly sins — wrath, envy, pride and greed (book and lecture fees?) — while grandiosely claiming he was defending the black church."

solipsistic adj. [from the Latin solus alone + ipse self]
of or pertaining to a theory holding that the self can know nothing but its own modifications and that the self is the only existent thing
