Analytic Philosophy And Death: Brain Death And Personal Identity
Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 6 (5):123-124 (1996)
AbstractThe subject of brain death has been a topic of cross-cultural comparisons in earlier issues of EJAIB . In this paper I look at the relationship between brain death criteria and self identity. Acceptance of the whole brain death definition depends on recognition of the fundamental element of human existence in the brain function. Philosophical analysis of the self identity problem is a clarifying key for the acceptance of the WBD criteria and is an important instrument for the debate on the definition of death, either Cortical Death or WBD
