    schema:reviewBody ""Karl Jaspers is one of the least understood and most neglected major philosophers of the twentieth century, and yet his ideas, particularly those concerned with death, have immense contemporary relevance." "Filiz Peach provides a clear explanation of Jaspers' philosophy of existence, clarifying and reassessing the concept of death that is central to his thought. For Jaspers, a human being is not merely a physical entity but a being with a transcendent aspect and so, in some sense 'deathless.' Peach explores this transcendent aspect of humanity and what it is to be 'deathless' in Jaspersian terms." "This book is a major contribution to the scarce literature on Jaspers and will be valuable to student and academic alike."--Jacket." ;
