About this product
- DescriptionDeath, Posthumous Harm, and Bioethics offers a highly distinctive and original approach to the metaphysics of death and applies this approach to contemporary debates in bioethics that address end-of-life and post-mortem issues. Taylor defends the controversial Epicurean view that death is t a harm to the person who dies and the neo-Epicurean thesis that persons cant be affected by events that occur after their deaths, and hence that posthumous harms (and benefits) are impossible. He then extends this argument by asserting that the dead cant be wronged, finally presenting a defence of revisionary views concerning posthumous organ procurement.
