4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great introduction to philosophical thinking.
_Confrontations with the Reaper_ is a good introduction to philosophical thinking. It is very well written and full of life. Many classroom discussions will pour from its pages.
The philosophy club at my college is using this text for a discussion along with Camus, Woody Allen, and _The Bagavad Gita_.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great introduction to philosophical thinking., November 10, 1997
This review is from: Confrontations with the Reaper: A Philosophical Study of the Nature and Value of Death (Paperback)
_Confrontations with the Reaper_ is a good introduction to philosophical thinking. It is very well written and full of life. Many classroom discussions will pour from its pages.
The philosophy club at my college is using this text for a discussion along with Camus, Woody Allen, and _The Bagavad Gita_.
The only problem with it is that it is so analytic that it seems to suggest materialism as an idea human state to be in, but that's just my personal problem with the book.
If you're studying the philosophy of death or are in a college philosophy club this one's a great pick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most useful contemporary work on this topic., August 8, 2009
This review is from: Confrontations with the Reaper: A Philosophical Study of the Nature and Value of Death (Paperback)
Feldman's analysis is cogent and creative, a hard combination to achieve. Worth reading and re-reading -- and invaluable to students.
