عنوان مقاله [English]
نویسنده [English]چکیده [English]
There are five sections in this article. In the first, we discuss about the importance of afterlife. Section two considers the possibility of survival from the standpoint of mind-body dualism and section three deals with the possibility of survival on a materialistic view. Section four addresses the afterlife in terms of empirical evidence. In section five, reasons are advanced for thinking that the reasonability of beliefs about an afterlife depends on the reasonability of metaphysical convictions.
