About the Author

Michael Cholbi is Professor of Philosophy at California State Polytechnic University Pomona.


This new collection of essays considers whether and when death is bad for those who die, as well as whether and when it would be good to live forever. The collection will be of great value to anyone who thinks seriously about mortality, and is a welcome addition to the literature on the philosophy of death. -- Steven Luper, Murchison Term Professor, and Philosophy Department Chair, Trinity University
This is a wonderful collection of original contributions on cutting-edge topics and literature of great human interest, with a helpful introductory essay. -- John Fischer, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Riverside
That the essays in this volume have stimulated so many questions in this short review should be taken as a testament to their interest -- and hence to the excellence of this volume as a whole [...] Immortality and the Philosophy of Death is an extremely valuable addition to the philosophical literature on these fascinating issues. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
