Courage is regarded as virtue in societies. But I have this dilemma:
I think courage is related to how you value your own life and whether you are willing to put it under risk for some reasons.
For example, I see someone asking me a phone, well, I calculate the risk that if I don't give up the phone this person could kill me because he is a thief say, so I give it up. Now, someone may say: hey he didn't have the courage to stand up. But for me it doesn't make sense. I could've done something but when I know it could have been fatal for me and since I value my life I decided not to intervene. Can someone clarify this dilemma for me? What exactly is courage and when is it courageous to do smth?
