About the Author

James Stacey Taylor is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at The College of New Jersey. He primarily writes on autonomy theory, and the metaphysics of death, as well as on how these theoretical issues relate to matters of practical ethical concern.


"this book contains many significant contributions to the field. It is a collection of essays by various authors who have established themselves as important contributors to the growing literature in this area, and who generally take this opportunity to present elaborations or developments of their views... Overall, there is much here to reward 'philosophical thanatologists,' whether they are new to the field or already well steeped in the literature." -- Eldon Soifer, Philosophy in Review
