Abstract:

Keizer attempts to unravel the various methods that humans find to help one another. He searches for the meaning of help through his own encounters with aiding others and retellings of the biblical story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37), contending that help is not simply a form of altruism but is based on our desire and intention to give aid. In addition, help is so much a part of our human character that we find ourselves asking whether or not we should help someone in need and, if so, how much we should lend our assistance.
