Suicide, Immortality, and the Method of Embarrassments
Bakan, David
Essence: Issues in the Study of Ageing, Dying, and Death, 1, 2, 61-68, 76
This paper, presented at Self-Destruction and Self-Creation, at Duquesne University (April, 1969) explains that the suicide, reacting to his experience of "being in question" (Heidegger), kills himself to arrogate death to his will. He allows the possibility that if he wished it, he could live forever and usurp death. (Author)
