Aristotle: two kinds of self-love

There is the kind of self-love which excludes the welfare of others and there is the kind the is inclusive of it. The former is the type of selfishness which should be condemned and the latter one should be approved. In fact it is the latter type which coincides with what is usually meant by altruism. When one identifies his own interests with the welfare of others he is realizing a larger and more inclusive self and it is this type of selfhood which constitutes his real self or what is commonly known as one's ideal self.

Logos

Logos is a way of arguing calmly and carefully, using reason alone and not relying on the emotions.

We might say that logos comes from the mind, while pathos comes from the heart.

Postmodernism in a nutshell

A suspicion towards Enlightenment ideals of rationalism and social progress.
A pluralistic blending of diverse beliefs, styles, and cultures.
A flattening of institutional hierarchies towards more collaborative forms of organization.
The de-centering of traditional sources of authority.
If seen as a cultural-historical trend, postmodernism is simply something that is happening, whether one likes it or not. On the other hand, postmodernism is also a kind of philosophical approach that deconstructs truth claims made by individuals, institutions, or social groups in order to examine the power dynamics underlying those truth claims. In other words, who benefits from this particular construction of the “truth” and who is disempowered, excluded, or marginalized?
