The Possibility of Altruism, Paperback Book

The Possibility of Altruism Paperback



Just as there are rational requirements on thought, there are rational requirements on action.

This book defends a conception of ethics, and a related conception of human nature, according to which altruism is included among the basic rational requirements on desire and action.
