Publisher's Description

What is human life really worth?


Overview


It costs $65,000 a year to keep Charles Colson s autistic grandson Max in a special-needs school. Utilitarian philosophers such as Peter Singer would decry this expenditure as a giant waste, because Max will never lead a normal life, and he and other students like him completely disrupt the lives of their caregivers. Besides, think of all that could be purchased with that $65,000 medicines for African AIDS victims, meals for the homeless, childcare for single mothers, new police cars for violent neighborhoods. Investing so much in the education of one autistic boy makes no logical sense, but Colson believes it s the right thing to do.


How much is life worth? Why is every life precious? How does an ethic of love work in the real world? We ll explore these questions in this study.
