Aristotle and Brain Death

date Thursday, 3 November 2016 time 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

👤 Niel Rosen 🏢 The Third Floor/Slim's Diner


This class will consider the neurological determination of death, also known as “brain death”, by exploring three themes:

Our exploration of these themes will be framed by the debate over the status of individuals who have been declared dead even though their bodies display otherwise indisputable signs of life, such as breath, pulse, and warmth. We will focus on this ambiguity, which much of the literature about brain death does not address.
