June 1991 LSAT Section 3 Question 22
Irina on July 13, 2019@Lizzie The different uses of the term "selfish" here are selfish individualism versus selfish concern for the human species, i.e. concern for one's own species well-being rather than a pursuit of one's self-interest. The author uses an example of this "species selfishness" to argue that every period of human history is characterized by "selfish individualism," even though these are two distinct behaviors. Let me know if this makes sense and if you have any more questions.
