Death Be Not Proud

In my review of Sonia Arrison’s terrific new book on the revolution in anti-aging technology“100 Plus: How the Coming age of Longevity Will Change Everything, From Careers and Relationships to Family and Faith,” I didn’t get a chance to discuss the fascinating foreword by Peter Thiel. Philosophically rich and provocative, Thiel’s mini-essay on what he calls “The Problem of Death” is alone worth the price of the book (for a view contra Thiel and Arrison I recommend reading Leon Kass here and here).
