Abstract

Robert Ettinger founded the cryonics (cryonic hibernation) movement in the 1960s and authored The Prospect of Immortality and Man into Superman. The ideas presented by Ettinger in these two books are examined in the present volume by living philosophers:

• The Prisoner’s Dilemma, Collective Rationality, And The Prospect Of An Indefinite Prolongation Of Life (By John M. Collins)

• Desirable And Undesirable Immortality: Ettinger And Arendt On Coping With Human Finitude (By Farhang Erfani)

• Immortality, Death, And Our Obligations To Future Generations (By Richard V. Greene)

• Time Shock And The Problem Of Anachronistic Being: An Anthropological Approach To Cryonics (By James C. Lindahl)

• Caring Cryonics? (By Rita C. Manning)

• Ettinger And Immortality (By Scott D. O’Reilly)

• A Kantian Critique Of Cryonic Immortality (By Scott R. Stroud)

• Toward A New Theory Of Personhood (By Charles Tandy)

• The Anti-Death Philosophy Of N. F. Fedorov (By Charles Tandy and R. Michael Perry)

• Immortality, Identity, And The Grounds Of Egoistic Concern (By Scott D. Wilson)

• The Prospect Of Mortality: Buddhist And Heideggerian Critical Reflections On Ettinger (By Jason M. Wirth)

In the Afterword, Ettinger responds to the evaluations and to other issues current in professional philosophy.
