    My hunch is that you will receive several traditional
    answers to your inquiry and many answers grounded
    in sociobiology...so I'll skip those.

    I would recommend that you peruse the work of Lynn Margulis
    on Symbiosis and evolution. ....with symb. as the author of
    evoltuion and nat. selec. as the editor.

    Altruism proproably comes in many kinds and ways.
    The resonance of philanthropy is probably the promblem for
    many, as is the "nature red in tooth and claw" popular
