Enlightened self-interest???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 28 Feb 18 in Living in a social group, Self-interest |

Good Morning REBT Mates!

. . .  human beings had better mind the fact that they live in a social world and that a philosophy of self-interest, where a person places him or herself first, also implies putting others a close second. 

“The Practice of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy” ~Ellis, Dryden

 Do you agree that this is a healthy and rational approach to living in a social group?  Why or why not?   Isn’t putting oneself first “selfish” and anti-social?
