Product Overview

Karl Jaspers is one of the most misunderstood twentieth century philosophers, yet his philosophical ideas are relevant to our contemporary existence and our understanding of human finitude and in particular and most specifically, death.

Filiz Peach provides us with a clear explanation of Jaspers''s philosophy of existence and seeks to clarify his views on death and ''deathlessness'' in relation to the human being. For Jaspers, a human being is not merely a physical entity but a being with a transcendent aspect, in some sense ''deathless''.

This book does not claim to be a comprehensive discourse on Jaspers'' philosophy, rather it is a philosophical explanation of his notion of death. It is an exciting piece of research, which sets Jaspers in his historical and philosophical context, highlighting the relevance and importance of his thinking which will appeal to a range of academic disciplines.
