What makes you identical with that baby, born years ago on your birthday? Could what enables you to survive life, also enable you to survive death? Belief in immortality may come from wishful thinking (Hume), but also from intuitions about the necessity of your existence, and the contingency of your association with this body (Descartes, Sankara, Johnston)—intuitions which, though regrettably mistaken, have moral significance.
This event is free and open to the public. There is no need to book.
