Im wondering whether either of them ever talked about limits to helping others and when we should choose ourselves. Ive tried doing some research but unfortunately to not avail.

  • Maybe focus on just Aristotle or Kant (or open a question for each). Or are you asking how their views compare?

  • This question is too broad for our format. Please narrow not only by philosopher, but perhaps by a subset of the notion of selfishness vs. altruism.
