    Morality, Alliances, And Altruism Shunning altruism from the wrong people. Posted Check Out Our Affluence, Altruism and Morality Essay Altruism is a philosophical term, which denotes a concern for other people’s welfare. It is a core aspect for most cultures, however it differs with regard to whom the concern should be directed and for what reasons it should become necessary.

    Altruism (also called the ethic of altruism, moralistic altruism, and ethical altruism) is an ethical doctrine that holds that the moral value of an individual's actions depend solely on the impact on other individuals, regardless of the consequences on the individual itself. James Fieser states the altruist dictum as: "An action is morally right if the consequences of that action are more. Two other books in moral philosophy, Friendship, Altruism and Morality (Routledge, ), and Moral Perception and Particularity (Cambridge University Press, ) have been influential in that field as well as feminist philosophy, political theory, and religious studies.

She mentions, in passing, other moral obligations, such as paying one’s debts and telling the truth, but notes that these can be fulfilled while leading a perfectly normal (non-altruistic.In philosophical discussions of friendship, it is common to follow Aristotle (Nicomachean Ethics, Book VIII) in distinguishing three kinds of friendship: friendships of pleasure, of utility, and of virtue.

Although it is a bit unclear how to understand these distinctions, the basic idea .Altruism declares that any action taken for the benefit of others is good, and any action taken for one's own benefit is evil.

Thus the beneficiary of an action is the only criterion of moral value - and so long as that beneficiary is anybody other than oneself, anything goes.
