Wikipedia Tour: Nobel Peace Prize Laureates
20 Installments—Entirely free
While most of the Nobel Prizes are awarded for tangible contributions to fields of study—literature, physics, medicine, chemistry—the peace prize is unique in how it measures the success of its winners. Rather than a single advance in a given field, the peace prize looks more broadly at the impact of a person’s life on humanity at large. Here you can read about luminaries like Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Ghandi, and Elie Wiesel and the change they sought—and helped make happen—in society. Although at times the selection for the peace laureate has been politically contentious, learning about the lives of individuals who have worked for the greater good will remind you that often it is the ripples that matter more than the stone.
