However, as we shall see, there are special circumstances in which a gene can
achieve its own selfish goals best by fostering a limited form of altruism at the
level of individual animals. “Special” and ... 61 Our genes may “instruct us to be
selfish,” but we are under no obligation to obey them. There is a sense in which
human beings must actively resist their genes if they are “to build a society in
which individuals cooperate generously and unselfishly towards a common good
.” But can ...

Does he mean to admit, that if a . man regards himself more than God, and his
own interest and happiness, more than the good of all the universe beside, he is
necessarily selfish ? Certainly not, unless I misunderstand him ; for he contends,
that a moral being may be destitute of benevolence and actuated by self-love,
and still not be selfish. But as I said in the Strictures, if such a being love himself
at all, he must love himself supremely. What other object does he regard more
than self?

Stephanie can act like such a selfish princess sometimes and that drives me
crazy. Dawn is the smart one, but she can be just as cynical as Cynthia. Some
days I think if I could get as far away from them as possible, I'd be so happy.” She

In contemporary discourse, what is 'natural' is often implied to be good (e.g. in
talk of 'natural' food, colourings, and babycare), and the 'unnatural' is condemned
as bad. Rousseau (especially his eloquent eighteenth-century treatise on
education, Emile) has been influential in fostering this assumption that what is '
natural' must be best; but it is highly contentious. Consider, for example, feeding
infants on formula, adults drinking cows' milk, innoculation, office work, air travel,

“What this passage means is not that people are evil, but that people are not
capable of loving God as God wants to be loved. People's fundamental instincts
lead them to be selfish, to ignore God. But without God, even the good a person
tries to do is corrupt. Only God can overcome man's inability, his total depravity. It
is through divine grace that children of glory can be fashioned from children of
wrath.” Willi's cheeks burned. He waited until the last parishioners had exited,

The way to make such friends is not by being angry, nor by having good
education or intelligence, but by having a good heart. To think more deeply, if you
must be selfish, then be wisely selfish, not narrow-mindedly selfish. The key thing
is the sense of universal responsibility; that is the real source of strength, the real
source of happiness. If our generation exploits everything available — the trees,
the water, and the minerals — without any care for the coming generations or the
future, ...

Richard Dawkins famously described genes as “selfish.” Taken literally, this is of
course nonsense: genes are no more selfish than toenails. To be selfish requires
self-interested motives, and genes, as sophisticated they may be, have no
motives – selfish or otherwise. But Dawkins was making a different point. Viewing
genes as selfish – as “interested” in their own good – serves to locate the level at
which natural selection works. And this in turn locates where most of the (
biological) ...
