By Michael Sudduth

Sudduth offers a serious exploration of classical empirical arguments for postmortem survival-arguments that purport to teach that information accrued from ostensibly paranormal phenomena represent reliable proof for the survival of the self or person awareness after dying. targeting arguments in response to the knowledge of near-death stories, mediumship, and situations of the reincarnation style, he goals to restore the culture of empirical inquiry into existence after loss of life linked to philosophers William James, C.D. large, H.H. expense, and C.J. Ducasse. Sudduth proposes to improve the controversy with a unique procedure. For the 1st time, the conventional arguments are formalized utilizing the instruments of formal epistemology. Sudduth exhibits that this strategy exposes the Achilles Heel of the classical arguments, a self-defeating dependence on auxiliary assumptions. He additional argues that once reformulated within the gentle of the 'problem of auxiliaries,' long-standing skeptical objections to the classical arguments are resistant to conventional survivalist counter-arguments.
