Author’s Introduction

  1. This book is devoted to the metaphysics of life and death, the significance of life and death, and the ethics of life and death.
  2. As will become apparent, these three topics are interrelated. Work on the nature of death benefits from work on the nature of life, and bears on life's significance, while discussions of the moral significance of killing people and other animals draw on discussions of the nature of the interests of such creatures (at various stages of their development), the significance of their lives, and the extent to which death harms them.

I have removed the helpful chapter summaries to the individual chapter abstracts.
