For generations we have believed that man is driven by ruthless self-interest, but over the past decade this idea has been increasingly challenged. New research from fields as diverse as political science, psychology, sociology and experimental economics is forcing us to rethink human actions and motivation.

There are strong biological reasons to believe why group cooperation may beat being selfish.

But if altruism is intrinsic in man and we can all benefit from acting in a selfless manner then a society structured around altruism should be possible.
