These questions, illustrative of those addressed in this book, concern the relevance of other-interested considerations -- of facts about what is good or bad for others -- to the moral status of persons and their actions.

When people do generous things such as voluntary work in refugee camps,
guiding strangers, contributing to charities, and giving aid to victims of natural
disasters, we quickly conclude that they are altruistic because for us altruism
means acting in other people's interests. There is nothing wrong with referring to
generous and charitable people as altruistic but what we want to correct in this
book is the illusion that such people are not influenced by some degree of self-
interest. We want ...

SELF-EFFACEMENT AND MORAL AUTHORITY To take serious account of the
interests of others, as the idea of duty requires, entails some degree of
suppression of self-interest which is among the most powerful and universal
instincts in human nature. In its most primal form, self-interest is expressed as the
drive to self-preservation in all living creatures. For plants and most animals, this
drive is entirely instinctual. In human beings, however, self-interest is under the
more conscious ...

We are so engrossed and centered in our own egoism, so preoccupied with our
petty problems, that we are not aware of that greater and all-embracing
Consciousness; we do not wish to be aware of Her, for we still believe that we are
able to solve our problems individually without considering the interest of others.
Let us suppose, for one instant, that suddenly the whole world would become
aware of this consciousness, as some are aware of it now; what would happen?

We may not realize it, but others sure do. It was Dale Carnegie who said, over 80
years ago, “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in
other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in
you.” Expressing sincere interest in others is one of the key elements of human
relations. By expressing sincere interest in one's appearance, qualities, history,
stories, hobbies, work, family, or anything else closely related to that person, you
are ...

Ashmore takes as his point of departure the works of social psychologists such as
Erich Fromm, Karen Horney, and Abraham Maslow, arguing that they have
shown that harmonious and integrated personality development implies no
disjunction between self-interest and interest in others. Ashmore summarizes the
import of their findings thus: The conclusion for ethics is that individual fulfillment
cannot in principle be opposed to regard for others, since the needs and interests
of that ...

The satisfaction of a more sophisticated desire, the desire to have it actually be
the case that one sets back as many interests of others as possible, would be a
bad thing. Such a desire is inherently evil in an additional sense, namely that its
satisfaction would necessarily involve not just evil but thoroughgoing or
pervasive evil. Many biological interests are such that their satisfaction requires
the defeat of other interests. For instance, ensuring the satisfaction of my
biological interest in ...
