      Earthly Immortalities: How the Dead Live On in the Lives of Others
In this thought provoking book, Peter Moore examines the often overlooked issues concerning human mortality, the fragile ways in which the dead can be said to live on in earthly terms through their children, their work, the memories of others, their possessions, and even their bodies Such earthly immortalities raise a host of fascinating questions about our attitudes toward life, and toward the world we leave behind us when we die To what extent does the meaning we find in our lives depend upon the assumption there will always be a new generation to continue the human adventure What would it be like if science were able to extend life indefinitely, and is this something already enshrined in the doctrine of reincarnation Can we solve our anxieties about mortality by learning that life is worth living precisely because we do not live forever In a generous and eloquent account, these and are the questions Earthly Immortalities seeks to answer.
