Synopsis

Death is a subject which has always been high on the philosophical agenda. But strangely enough the historically and traditionally most important aspect of that subject -- the so-called transcendent problem of death (i.e. the question of what actually happens to mind or consciousness after physical death) is almost taboo-laden within modern academic philosophy. The main parts of this book deal with questions concerning the viability of preconditions such as mind-body dualism, a substance-theory of mind, a non-reductionist view of personal identity, the notion of "a minimal self", the persistence of the phenomenal "now" etc. An understanding of "the ontology of mind" is achieved, which indicates the possibility of a revival of some old and extremely important questions which are commonly and unjustly neglected -- for instance the transcendent problem of death.
