Pro-Social Behaviour: Biological, Moral and Emotional Perspectives
Keywords:Perspectives, Pro social behaviour
AbstractProsocial behaviour is studied not just in psychology but also in economics, sociology, biology, and other fields. It was realised that a person’s prosocial behaviour is crucial since it serves as the foundation for social involvement in the outer world. The goal of this review was to better understand the various viewpoints on prosocial behaviour. The current research demonstrates that prosocial behaviour may be understood using three broad perspectives. The studies here, highlight the biological roots of prosocial behaviour and demonstrate that it is not limited to humans. It is also seen that, Prosocial behaviour can have emotional as well as moral roots, such as moral reasoning and social learning.The review can be used for understanding these varied viewpoints, in order to identify and adapt methods of strengthening such behavior and conduct further research.
