Can you place a value on human life?
Throughout history, many courageous people have placed a high value on the lives of others. Think of people such as Harriet Tubman who moved slaves from the South to Canada and out of harm’s way; Oskar Schindler used his own factory to protect Jews from the Nazis during World War II. These people risked their own lives and fortunes to aid others. One would say that they placed a high value on other human beings. So, what is the value of a human life? Can we measure the value of a life? During this module, you will read fictional stories, poems, news stories, magazine articles, blogs, and speeches to explore the idea of the value of human life (Taken from Chandra Manning's Wikispace).
