The present essay attempts to do something that has not been done in the recent literature concerning death, namely, to link reasons for attitudes towards death to reasons for different metaphysical postions on human being and the place of human being in the universe. Most recent discussions of death either place the topic directly in the context of nothing more than ethical considerations continued on the next page.
