Personal Identity

Life After Death

(Text as at 03/08/2013 23:44:10)


This is an umbrella-note for the ways in which post-mortem survival might be actualised, namely:-

I have some other notes on this and related topics as part of Philosophy of Religion and my Blog:- Johnston thinks (in "Johnston (Mark) - Surviving Death") that there’s a forensic8 need for post-mortem survival of some sort, as otherwise there’s no incentive to be good, and hopes to provide it by a radical redefinition of what the person is. But this strikes me as changing the subject.

This is mostly a place-holder9. Currently, see the categorised reading-list, which requires some pruning in order to fit to identity-related issues only.
