An interesting link on the nature, expression and fostering of altruism and related is www.unlimitedloveinstitute.org. Per its mission statement –
The unique mission of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love is:
|(1) to study the benefits of benevolent love for those who give it and for those who receive it|
|(2) to bring the results of research to the wider public in understandable and practical format|
|(3) to sustain an international dialogue around the possibility of global human enhancement through the application of a new science of love|
|(4) to encourage discussion within spiritual traditions about love for a shared humanity, rather than for some small fragment of humanity|
|(5) to develop an ongoing dialogue between spirituality, theology, and science around the idea of unlimited love as the ultimate ground of reality|
It minimally provides a complementary venue to the more traditional philosophical, theological and scientific approaches without apparently marginalizing any of them.
