|Abstract:||We don't like to think about death. In fact, we do everything we can to avoid it. Is it something to be feared? Why? Who does death harm? What kind of a loss is involved in the loss of a human life? Does the finitude of life render it, as Tolstoy thought, meaningless? Or is it rather the other way around? How is an attempt to make life meaningful affected by the fact that we don't know when we will die? Would immortality be desirable? Joining the University of Sydney from the University of Arizona, QEII Research Fellow Jenann Ismael will explore one of life's most grave concerns, 'death'.|
