Keith Augustine and Michael Martin are putting together an anthology of papers arguing that there is no afterlife. They commissioned a paper from me. I am happy to enroll as a culture warrior, so I’m planning to co-author a piece with my colleague Sonya Bahar –the director of the Center for Neurodynamics here at UMSL.
Now I’m looking for the best recent defenses of the afterlife, in order to make them my target. Keith Augustine helpfully suggested looking at David Lund’s _Persons, Souls and Death _ (McFarland, 2009). Does anyone else know of other good quality, philosophically sophisticated defenses of mental life after brain death?
