In numerous cultures around the world heroism is a respected personal
quality. I am curious as to how the act of placing oneself in immediate
danger to assist someone already in danger came to be recognised as such
a worthy deed. Surely it is for both the social good and the personal
good not to do so? How did heroism evolve into such a widely respected
quality, and should it be held as such?
