Is this sentence correct?

This specific ability to care for others before the need for the other to recall that he is living... too.

Context: this sentence is used to illustrate the meaning of the "caring for others"'s concept.

  • It's pretty hard to understand what this is saying with those ellipses, but I'm thinking it maybe is? We'd (or at least, I'd) really need more context to be able to provide a useful answer. Speaking more generally, though, yes, it's possible to construct a grammatically correct and fully understandable sentence that says "the need for the other to do something." It's not used super commonly--I don't think, at least--but I wouldn't think twice about hearing it in regular speech. – Matthew Haugen Nov 16 '14 at 12:14
  • Makes little sense to me. Are the ellipses to show that there are parts missing? If so, more context might help. – gone fishin' again. Nov 16 '14 at 12:31
  • I apologies for the ellipses. No they were just suppose to add a little style to the sentence. I removed them. – JinSnow Nov 16 '14 at 12:58

Caring For Others Concept.

The altruistic ability to care for the well-being of others before "the others" ask for or even realise that they need it.

This is purely an assumption based on the limited meaning I can grasp from your post.
