Week 4 Egoism
Watch the following videos:
During war time and times of crises, there are people who willingly sacrifice their lives to save others for a greater good. For example, on September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer and others on United Flight 93 overpowered the plane’s hijackers and, in doing so, prevented the plane from crashing into Washington, D.C. Beamer and the other 43 passengers and crew members were killed when the plane crashed in a remote area of Pennsylvania.
In a short essay, discuss how Thomas Hobbes and E. O. Wilson might explain Beamer’s actions. Are you satisfied with their explanations? Support your answer.
Your essay should be approximately 1 page, double-spaced(roughly 275 words). You will be graded on content, organization, development, conventions, and APA format.
