One of the main aims of the research on prosocial behavior from its very beginning was to find out what the determinants of such a behavior might be. In fact, during the past 15 years a great body of evidence concerning the variety of possible determinants has been accumulated. An extensive review of such evidence by Bar-Tal (1976) indicates that a large number of factors can play a role in promoting (or inhibiting) prosocial behavior.
