What answers come from having more life? And what, if anything, is ethically valuable about the idea of an afterlife? In seeking to answer these questions, we venture into various areas of philosophy; ethics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language. We consider alternative pictures to the dogmatic view of eternal life as immortality, i.e. 'more life'. Through retrospective analysis of Christian teachings and those of philosophers such as Spinoza, Nietzsche, Bergson and Wittgenstein, we will expose a profound and equally valid interpretation of eternal life as mortality.
