Definitely not. You have to admit it. that man is an animal. The animal is selfish, and all the altruism we commit is primarily aimed at personal satisfaction.
A person commits altruistic acts, first of all, for himself, and not for others
We need to think about how we understand absolutism in this case. Do we mean that each of our actions is altruistic, that is, aimed at the benefit of another person? Or that some particular action of ours is directed exclusively at another (and we in this case do not think about the benefits for ourselves)?�
If the first option is implied, then this, in my opinion, is extremely unlikely. It is not uncommon for us to think only of ourselves, and this is normal – after all, we want to live and live well.�
If the second option is used, then it is theoretically possible. At the very least, we can think that we are doing something solely for the sake of our neighbor. However, at the same time, there is always the possibility that on a subconscious level we do this for ourselves, without noticing it (but, again, this is normal and, therefore, not essential).�
I'll summarize it. Yes, I believe that in one particular case we can act on the principles of altruism. At the same time, we can hardly do this all our lives
still would understand what kind of “beast” this is. If you mean absolutely unselfish actions for the benefit of others, where there is no place for any benefit for yourself, even righteous benefit, pure good, even for the soul – then this does not exist in nature.. And there is no need for such Prometheism, because it has no personal meaning, and if there is no personal meaning, then it is meaningless.But if you mean-whether there is a selfless act without a second thought, but purely out of love – then such an action exists and it is called a Sacrifice, the main one of which is the Sacrifice of Christ.16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.(John 3: 16)
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.(Jn.10:11)
