About this title

Synopsis:

Death And Anti-Death, Volume 10: Ten Years After John Rawls (1921-2002) is edited by Charles Tandy, Ph.D. and Jack Lee, Ph.D.: ISBN 978-1-934297-15-5 is the Hardback edition and ISBN 978-1-934297-16-2 is the Paperback edition. Volume 10, as indicated by the anthology's subtitle, is in honor of John Rawls (1921-2002). The chapters do not necessarily mention him (but some chapters do). The chapters (by professional philosophers and other professional scholars) are directed to issues related to death, life extension, and anti-death, broadly construed. Most of the contributions consist of scholarship unique to this volume. As was the case with all previous volumes in the Death And Anti-Death Series By Ria University Press, the anthology includes an Index as well as an Abstracts section that serves as an extended table of contents. There are 11 chapters, as follows: ------CHAPTER ONE Autonomy, Contingency, And Mysticism: Three Critical Remarks On Cornelius Castoriadis' Understanding Of Human Mortality (by Giorgio Baruchello) pages 21-30; ------CHAPTER TWO Heidegger And Daoism On Mortality (by Wing-cheuk Chan) pages 31-54; ------CHAPTER THREE Autonomy In Moral And Political Philosophy (by John Christman) pages 55-94; ------CHAPTER FOUR A Fortunate Academic Life (by William Grey) pages 95-100; ------CHAPTER FIVE Who Is The Subject Of The Evil Of Death? (by Jack Lee) pages 101-114; ------CHAPTER SIX Is Death Necessarily Harmful? Some Reflections From A Daoist Perspective (by Shui-Chuen Lee) pages 115-130; ------CHAPTER SEVEN Our Global Problems And What We Need To Do About Them (by Nicholas Maxwell) pages 131-174; ------CHAPTER EIGHT Optimizing One's Immortality: Biostasis And The Philosophy Of Universal Immortalism (by R. Michael Perry) pages 175-212; ------CHAPTER NINE A Brief Inquiry Into Rawls' Religion: Providence, Individuals, And Redemption (by Charles Taliaferro) pages 213-224; ------CHAPTER TEN John Rawls, Albert Camus, And Our Common Task Of Intergenerational Justice (by Charles Tandy) pages 225-254; ------CHAPTER ELEVEN John Rawls (by Leif Wenar) pages 255-300; ------The INDEX begins on page 301.
