Mind and Death
Death is a subject which has always been high on the philosophical agenda. But strangely enough the historically and traditionally most important aspect of that subject - the so-called transcendent problem of death, i.e. the question of what actually happens to mind or consciousness after physical death - is almost taboo-laden within modern academic philosophy. This book deals with the questions concerning the viability of preconditions, such as mind-body dualism, a substance-theory of mind, a non-reductionist view of personal identity, the notion of "a minimal self," the persistence of the phenomenal "now," etc.
