Heidegger and a hippo walk through those pearly gates : using philosophy (and jokes!) to explain life, death, the afterlife, and everything in between / Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein
- Dead! Whatcha gonna do about it? Surely there must be some mistake ; Just let your angst be your umbrella ; Death : the way to go! ; Heideggerty-dog, ziggity-boom, what you do to me ; Spin your own immortality -- Eternity when you least expect it. The eternal now -- Immortality the old-fashioned way-- on the soul train. Plato, the godfather of soul ; Heaven, a landscape to die for -- Post mortem life : postcards from the other side. Tunnel vision ; The original knock-knock joke -- Death as a lifestyle choice. Beating death to the punch -- Biotechnology : stop the presses! Immortality through not dying -- The end.
- Explores death and the afterlife from lighthearted philosophical, theological, and psychological perspectives that consider that death may not be such a pessimism-inducing state.
