Rational Suicide?
Mayo, David J.
Journal of Personal & Interpersonal Loss, v3 n2 p193-203 Apr-Jun 1998
The rational suicide paradigm is contrasted with the traditional view of the mental health professions. Historical background on suicide in western civilization is supplied and the concept of rationality elucidated. Parallels between the questions of refusing life-prolonging therapy and rational suicide are discussed, as are reasons for suicide. (EMK)
