Reviews

It is a merit of this book to show by many sophisticated and subtle arguments that Jaspers' idea of deathlessness must be interpreted outside of a religious framework. Another merit is the scrupulous explication of basic concepts of Jaspers' philosophy in an analytical style. This analytical approach to Jaspers recommends this book to philosophers in the Anglo-American tradition, and not just to Continental or existentialist philosophers.
