    Abstract

    Recently, it seems that unselfish aspects such as altruism and fairness receive more attention in the economic literature. In this paper some historical opinions on the notion of altruism are presented. Particularly, the views of Spencer and Edgeworth are discussed. Moreover, an effort is made to develop some links into modern issues.
