Is there some special value to life?

The question invites you to consider the value of life. You can defend either the claim (a) there is no special value to life, or the claim (b) that there is such a value. If you defend (a) you will need rule out the more plausible candidates for being life’s special value. If you defend (b), you will need to say what kind of value this is and show that life has this value. There are several different ways in which you might approach the question. You could defend (a) by arguing either that life is not valuable, or that life does have value but not a ‘special’ value (that is, it is not a value specific to life). If you defend (b) you might consider whether your account of life’s special value applies to all life, or only human life, or only the lives of some humans. Please produce a focused argument. Use your introduction to clearly set out exactly what you intend to achieve. IMPORTANT NOTE: At least ten per cent of the essay should focus on views or arguments discussed in the article ‘Hyperventilating about intrinsic value’. Relevant material: • Book 4, Chapter 1 and Reading 1. • The two audio recordings ‘The sanctity of life’ (transcripts attached). • The article 'Hyperventilating about intrinsic Value' Referencing: please use the Harvard guide to citing references.
