Description - Immortality Defended by John Leslie

Might we be parts of a divine mind? Could anything like an afterlife make sense? Starting with a Platonic answer to why the world exists, Immortality Defended suggests we could well be immortal in all of three separate ways. * Tackles the fundamental questions posed by our very existence, among them, "why does the cosmos exist?", "is there a divine mind or God?", and "in what sense might we have afterlives?" * Defends a belief in immortality, without the need for a religious affiliation or rejection of modern science * Explores the ideas of "Einsteinian immortality", the divine afterlife, and the theory of an infinite and divine mind * Draws from the work of a wide-range of philosophers, from ancient Greece to the present day, and incorporates up-to-date scientific findings * Written in a thought-provoking and engaging manner, accessible to anyone intrigued by the wonder of our being
