Can Shneidman's "Ten Commonalities of Suicide" Accommodate Rational Suicide?
Werth, James L., Jr.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v26 n3 p292-99 Fall 1996
Reviews the concept of rational suicide and compares it with one researcher's list of commonalities of suicide. Claims that the list cannot accommodate rational suicide. Suggests that the list is biased against rational suicide and should be renamed so it cannot be maintained that suicide must be irrational. (RJM)
