Putting Death in the Freezer: Cryonics as Technology, Law and Ethics

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


This chapter engages with ethical, legal and public policy questions about cryonics, a speculative technology whose proponents envisage the erasure of death through indefinite cold-storage and ‘reanimation’ of human cadavers. Claims regarding cryonics provoke thought about bioethics and about a belief system whose proponents expect that future tools will defeat death.
