The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »

If we are immortal, or if we become immortal, it will not be because we want to or because it is indispensable for morality, but because in a universe like ours we can no more help it than we can help feeling warm before a fire. So considered, personal immortality can be treated as any other alleged fact. Shailer Mathews examines it in the light of physiology, biology, and psychology; and through the keenness of his reasoning reaches a conception of the survival of personality that will forcefully commend itself to thinking people.
