I'm not saying that you should be centrist, but rather common sensist.
The French sensist retained the spiritual soul, but his followers disposed of it as Hume had done with the Berkeleian soul relic.
Some of these followers indeed denied that all the motives that influence man's conduct are selfish; they insist on the existence of symphatetic and social feelings in men, but whether selfish or social, all are rooted in a sensist philosophy.
Nominalism could exist at all in the Middle Ages, as it is possible only in a sensist philosophy that denies all natural distinction between sensation and the intellectual concept.
This sensist philosophy, of course, has had its opponents.
