This book is a contribution to the debate of the metaphysics and value of death. The metaphysical problems of death are closely connected with the debate of personal identity. Jens Johansson defends the view that human persons are human organisms.

This view, often called "Animalism," is apparently incompatible with a standard account of personal identity over time, "the Psychological View." The author shows how the Animalist can accommodate the intuitions that seem to support the Psychological View.
