Marx "He contends that men do seek the good but that they define the good in terms of their own self interest. He thus recognizes, as a hedonist can, the profound paradox of human spirituality and morality : that the interest of the self cannot be followed if the self cannot obscure these interests behind a facade of general [Page 2] interest and universal values." Niebuhr, NDM, 35
