Your Life Doesn’t Matter

What is the value of life?

As we go about our daily lives, many of us, even those of us who ponder philosophy regularly, take simple things like the fact that we are living sentient beings for granted. However, in this episode, the SPP team takes a stab at trying to identify what value if any it inherently holds. If life has a value, where does that value come from, or how is it established. We don’t just discuss this in the realm of humanity, but what qualifies something that exists as living, and what if any hierarchy of value can be placed on one life-form above another.
