A333 – week 18 – Is it bad to die?

A relatively light week this one, which was good as I was up late watching the superbowl then up early to accept a delivery. This week focused first on whether it is bad to die (Epicurus didn’t think so, since you’d be dead so you shouldn’t/wouldn’t care) and if so why. The main theory put forward was the Deprivation View (it’s bad because of the things you can’t do/have on account of being dead) with a few different flavours within that view in terms of who/what it applies to (bad news for sheep) and how you measure the deprivation. No audio to listen to, which is good for me as I tend to drift off during long interviews (or get distracted doing something else at the same time), I am much more likely to take in the written word when independently studying.
