Is it really good to be good? Does science say it’s so? To borrow a passage from St. Paul, God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7). Does helping others contribute to the happiness and health of those who give it?   Did Ralph Waldo Emerson have it right when he wrote, “No man can sincerely help another without helping himself.” In what sense is this true? Is it really in some way better to give than to receive, or at least as good? Is the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” a key to flourishing?  What does current research tell us about this perennial spiritual-moral truth.”

Stephen G. Post, Ph.D. ,  Professor of Preventive Medicine and Founding Director of the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, is the best-selling author of The Hidden Gifts of Helping
