About the Author:

Geoffrey Scarre is Reader in Philosophy at the University of Durham.

Review:

"Throughout the book Scarre succeeds brilliantly in laying out many of the mind-blowing problems and paradoxes of death. He moves easily from the ancient Greeks to the theories of Feinberg, Nagel, Fischer, Freud and Jaspers, and he admirably sticks to the essential questions which are on the table. With great competence and skill, Scarre takes on the role of guide and teacher who breaks down difficult arguments and positions for his readers. And since death is such a complicated and tricky matter, this, in itself, is a feat worth celebrating." - Ethical Perspectives "A clearly-written introduction ... the book offers a comprehensive and thorough survey of this fascinating philosophical field." - Mortality "Lucid, informed, and engaging, Geoffrey Scarre's book is an excellent introduction to the philosophy of death. Scarre surveys the literature on the nature and significance of death and makes original contributions of his own." - Steven Luper, Trinity University, San Antonio
