Philosophy for All Fargo Moorhead – Death: Who Is It Bad For?

January 19, 2017
7:00 pmto8:00 pm

Philosophy for All Fargo-Moorhead is open to everyone interested in philosophy. Its aim is to approach philosophical problems in a non-technical way to enable everyone to participate in discussion and debate. It aims to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. Free and open the public.

Epicurus famously argued that death cannot be bad for the one who dies because the person no longer exists when death is present.  Many have argued against Epicurus’ conclusion; I wish to consider Epicurus’ position and some of those objections. Ultimately, I want to argue, along with Epicurus, that death is not bad for the one who has died.

Presentation by Phil Mouch, MSUM, followed by discussion.
