Project 1: "You are not alone": measuring sociological factors involved in altrusitic behavior"
Altruism as a pure
form of 'other-oriented'
helping behavior; can be an ideal type
of being helpful to any individual in
need, without any expectations.
For a society, maintaining order and
predictability in actions of its members
is key. Order in a society is achieved when individuals in society
are not absolutely self oriented.
Measuring Sociological factors
involved in altruistic behavior can help design effective policies and
programs to reinforce Altruistic
behavior in society.
