Michael Cholbi is Professor of Philosophy at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
"This outstanding example of contemporary applied ethics also represents state-of-the-art philosophical thought on suicide. ...[Suicide is a] well-written, rigorously argued book [that] will be very valuable for courses and programs in applied ethics, health care ethics, and death and dying." - R.F. White, College of Mount St. Joseph in CHOICE Volume 49.7, March 2012 "Michael Cholbi's Suicide: The Philosophical Dimensions is a well-written, thoughtful introduction to a sensitive and perennial moral issue. The work is a valuable tool to undergraduates and those seeking to understand the standard positions on suicide that will continue to influence ethical discussions about, among other things, what the definition of suicide is, whether the taking of one's own life is permissible, and if suicide can be a duty under any set of circumstances." - Dennis Cooley, North Dakota State University "This is a philosophers' book, full of twists and turns and exhaustive examination of arguments on all sides of the issue. The book is remarkably sensible in its exploration of conceptual issues, with a good ear for inquiry. Cholbi dissects the arguments over mind/body dualism, the non-identity problem, the claim that "life is a gift from God," and the question of whether suicide is ever a duty, among many others, with meticulous care. It is a fine book, an extraordinary contribution to the philosophic discussion of a seriously overheated issue." - Margaret Pabst Battin, University of Utah
