4 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Almost lost to obscurity before now, Beyond Any Kind of God gives readers a glimpse into the philosophical views of the most controversial physician of our time. Written after his life-changing voyages abroad, Kevorkian's only philosophical book provides a compelling study of the doctor's early views on the meaning of life, solipsism, and death. Jack (Jacob) Kevorkian was infamous in his later life for his support of doctor-assisted suicide, for which he was incarcerated for eight years. Kevorkian was a multi-talented physician, philosopher, musician, and artist, and he wrote several books and countless articles on topics ranging from medical to philosophical to political. He was a firm believer in the 'right to die, ' and his views made him one of the most controversial figures of recent American history. Born in Pontiac, Michigan, in 1928 to Armenian-immigrant parents, Kevorkian showed an early interest in languages and medicine. He graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in 1952, and entered the Army, later serving in the Korean War. Upon leaving the Army, Kevorkian traveled extensively, and out of these travels came the inspiration for much of his early literature, including Beyond Any Kind of God. As a pathologist, Kevorkian researched unique procedures, and he became interested in end-of-life planning and care. In 1999, he was convicted for helping over one hundred patients end their lives, and he was incarcerated for eight years. Upon release, he toured the country and continued his campaign for a patient's right to make end-of-life decisions until his death in 2011

The two variable expansion procedure for the approximate solution of certain non-linear differential equations by J Kevorkian ( Book )
1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A method is presented for deriving the asymptotic representation valid for large times for the motion of a particle under the influence of a predominantly linear restoring force and small nonlinear perturbations. It is shown that such an asymptotic representation must be a function of two time variables, in order to depict the behavior of the solution. The basic ideas are explained by the liberal use of simple examples, and the method is also applied to two idealized problems in celestial mechanics. (Author)
