The Illusion of Immortality

4.37  ·  Rating Details ·  27 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
Written with wisdom and eloquence, this 303-page book thoroughly but sensitively discusses biblical notions of death, the impact of science, the various attempts by immortalists to describe heaven, and the failure of spiritual "proofs." Corliss Lamont also argues for a new, ethical affirmation of life based upon an appreciation of our common mortality.
Paperback, 303 pages
Published September 1st 1990 by The Continuum Publishing Company

What a fabulous book. What are we without our body?

Is there life after death? A resounding no, and here it is fairly examined from front to back. Nothing is missing from this phenomenal examination of whether the body or mind survives death. Introduction by the great John Dewey.
