Excessive Altruism
Wilson, John
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v25 n3 p339-345 2004
Altruism is an ideal which is almost universally approved. It is argued here that such almost universal acceptance of altruism may be grounded on a failure to interrogate the complexity both of the philosophical construct and of the human motivation underpinning its implementation.
