Morality and self-interest

Ever since “Know Thyself” was inscribed at Delphi, Western philosophers have struggled to understand the relations between morality and self-interest. This edited volume of essays pushes forward one of the oldest and most important debates in philosophy. Is morality a check on self-interest or is it in one’s self interest to be moral? Can morality and self-interest be understood independently of each other?
