This volume meets the increasing interest in a range of
philosophical issues connected with the nature and significance of
life and death, and the ethics of killing. What is it to be alive
and to die? What is it to be a person? What must time be like if we
are to persist? What makes one life better than another? May death
or posthumous events harm the dead? The chapters in this volume
address these questions, and also discuss topical issues such as
abortion, euthanasia, and suicide. They explore the interrelation
between the metaphysics, significance, and ethics of life and
death, and they discuss the moral significance of killing both
people and animals, and the extent to which death harms them. The
volume is for all those studying the philosophy of life and death,
for readers taking applied ethics courses, and for those studying
ethics and metaphysics more generally.
