A Naturalistic Afterlife:
Evolution, Ordinary Existence, Eternity
New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017
A completely fresh look—from a strictly evolutionary, naturalistic perspective—at one of the most enduring, absorbing, and universal questions human beings face: What happens to us after we die? In secular thought, the standard answer is simple: we disappear into oblivion. A Naturalistic Afterlife takes us in a different direction. The book makes the case that a nonconscious portion of our personality survives death—literally, not figuratively—and explains how this kind of naturalistic afterlife can be emotionally relevant to us while we are still living.
