From 18-24 March, the APJ is pleased to host a symposium on the Conclusion (chapter 7) of David Benatar’s book Better to Never have Been (OUP 2006) in which he claims that his anti-natalist views are compatible with certain religious views, including some Jewish views. With thanks to OUP, a copy of the Conclusion is available here to our readers for personal use only.
Commentators include Tyron Goldschmidt (Wake Forest) and Jeremy Wanderer (U. Mass).
