By James Stacey Taylor
Death, Posthumous damage, and Bioethics deals a hugely designated and unique method of the metaphysics of loss of life and applies this method of modern debates in bioethics that deal with end-of-life and autopsy concerns. Taylor defends the debatable Epicurean view that dying isn't really a damage to the person that dies and the neo-Epicurean thesis that folks can't be stricken by occasions that ensue after their deaths, and accordingly that posthumous harms (and advantages) are very unlikely. He then extends this argument by means of announcing that the lifeless can't be wronged, eventually offering a defence of revisionary perspectives touching on posthumous organ procurement.
