Selfishness, Self-Concern and Happiness

Journal of Religious Ethics 8 (1):149 - 159 (1980)
Abstract
To see how one can unselfishly pursue his moral obligations for the sake of being happy, we need to distinguish between the universal, unchosen, unfocused desire for happiness and the particular, variable desire for that in which we invest our larger interest in being happy. Only the latter form of the desire for happiness threatens to reduce morality to a menial status.
