Editorial Reviews


"This book is recommended for professionals in Plato, Nietzsche, Rawls, and late-twentieth-century contract theory."—James A. Keim, Husch and Eppenberger, Ill., Perspectives in Political Science, Vol. 26, No. 2, Spring 1997

"John E. Seery has written a highly imaginative book about death, the most obvious and least encompassable fact. He throws new light on this ancient subject. There is no morbidity in Seery's treatment but rather a wonderful combination of openness and subtlety."—George Kateb, Princeton University
