Description:
This is Thomas Nagelís Mortal Questions in Hebrew translation. Mortal Questions explores some fundamental issues concerning the meaning, nature and value of human life.

Questions about our attitudes to death, sexual behaviour, social inequality, war and political power are shown to lead to more obviously philosophical problems about personal identity, consciousness, freedom, and value.

This original and illuminating book aims at a form of understanding that is both theoretical and personal in its lively engagement with what are literally issues of life and death.
