Altruism

Altruism refers to intentional behaviors that benefit another person

Theories of altruism:

Hedonism: acts of altruism are really selfish acts that benefit the actor

Emotional satisfaction

Reduction of negative feelings in the actor

Reciprocal altruism: natural selection favors animals that are altruistic if the benefit to each is greater than the cost of altruism
