Product description

Death And Anti-Death, Volume 7: Nine Hundred Years After St. Anselm (1033-1109) is edited by Charles Tandy, Ph.D.: ISBN 978-1-934297-05-6 is the Hardback edition and ISBN 978-1-934297-07-0 is the Paperback edition. Volume 7, as indicated by the anthology's subtitle, is in honor of St. Anselm (1033-1109). The chapters do not necessarily mention him (but some chapters do). The chapters (by professional philosophers and other professional scholars) are directed to issues related to death, life extension, and anti-death, broadly construed. Most of the contributions consist of scholarship unique to this volume. As was the case with all previous volumes in the Death And Anti-Death Series By Ria University Press, the anthology includes an Index as well as an Abstracts section that serves as an extended table of contents. (Volume 7 also has a BRIEF COMMUNICATIONS section.) Volume 7 includes chapters by some of the world's leading living thinkers, including: -----Philosopher of in vitro meat - Brian J. Ford; -----Medievalist philosopher - Jasper Hopkins; -----Today's "Thomas Edison" - Ray Kurzweil; -----Oxford University Metaphysician - J. R. Lucas; -----Ontological argument experts - Graham Oppy ("Nay") and Charles Taliaferro ("Yea").
