When The Levee Breaks

Death And The Afterlife
Samuel Scheffler | Oxford University Press | 2013

Recommended by John Cottingham at Notre Dame Philosophical Review:
"Scheffler has produced a superb essay, entirely free from obfuscating jargon yet meticulously argued and demanding in exactly the right way, forcing us to think about hitherto unexamined implications of our existing beliefs. It is rich in psychological and ethical insight, and restores philosophy to its proper role of tackling the big structural concerns inseparable from the human condition"
