Beschreibung

Might we be parts of a divine mind? Could anything like anafterlife make sense? Starting with a Platonic answer to why theworld exists, Immortality Defended suggests we could well beimmortal in all of three separate ways. * * Tackles the fundamental questions posed by our very existence,among them, "why does the cosmos exist?", "is there a divine mindor God?", and "in what sense might we have afterlives?" * Defends a belief in immortality, without the need for areligious affiliation or rejection of modern science * Explores the ideas of "Einsteinian immortality", the divineafterlife, and the theory of an infinite and divine mind * Draws from the work of a wide-range of philosophers, fromancient Greece to the present day, and incorporates up-to-datescientific findings * Written in a thought-provoking and engaging manner, accessibleto anyone intrigued by the wonder of our being
