Transcript of ALTRUISM

"Our actions should be designed to help others whatever the personal cost."
Love of one's neighbor is the ultimate ethical standard
Calls for self-sacrificial behavior
Means sacrificing something for someone with no expectation of compensation or benefits, either direct, or indirect
Concern for the welfare of others
Universal value promoted in cultures from all over the world
