9781137440938: A Philosophical Critique of Empirical Arguments for Postmortem Survival (Palgrave Frontiers in Philosophy of Religion)

Sudduth provides a critical exploration of classical empirical arguments for survival arguments that purport to show that data collected from ostensibly paranormal phenomena constitute good evidence for the survival of the self after death. Utilizing the conceptual tools of formal epistemology, he argues that classical arguments are unsuccessful.

About the Author:

Dr. Michael Sudduth (D.Phil., University of Oxford) is a philosopher of religion at San Francisco State University, with previous appointments at Saint Michael's College and Calvin College. His previous book The Reformed Objection to Natural Theology explored the propriety and role of arguments for God's existence in the Protestant theological tradition.

Review:

"In this important new book, Sudduth applies his skills as an analytical philosopher to a thorough going examination of the logic of existing empirical arguments for personal postmortem survival .. . . It is dense with hard, clear, sustained, and provocative critical thinking, and rich in penetrating observations about the state of play in contemporary discussions of postmortem survival." - Ed Kelly, Professor of Research, Division of PerceptualStudies, University of Virginia School of Medicine, USA

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 336 pages. Sudduth provides a critical exploration of classical empirical arguments for postmortem survival-arguments that purport to show that data collected from ostensibly paranormal phenomena constitute good evidence for the survival of the self or individual consciousness after death. Focusing on arguments based on the data of near-death experiences, mediumship, and cases of the reincarnation type, he aims to revive the tradition of empirical inquiry into life after death associated with philosophers William James, C. D. Broad, H. H. Price, and C. J. Ducasse. Sudduth proposes to advance the debate with a novel approach. For the first time, the traditional arguments are formalized using the tools of formal epistemology. Sudduth shows that this procedure exposes the Achilles Heel of the classical arguments, a self-defeating dependence on auxiliary assumptions. He further argues that when reformulated in the light of the problem of auxiliaries, long-standing skeptical objections to the classical arguments are immune to traditional survivalist counter-arguments.
