  • YOU ONLY DIE ONCE: WHY BRAIN DEATH IS NOT THE DEATH OF A HUMAN BEING A REPLY TO NICHOLAS TONTI-FILIPPINI

    [My argument] has revealed the total absence of any compelling
    philosophical or scientific reason to interpret brain-mediated somatic
    integration as constitutive of the human organism; all the evidence is
    compatible with, indeed, positively suggests, the conclusion that brainmediated
    somatic integration maintains the organism’s health or promotes
    its survival, but does not constitute it as a living whole in the first place. By
    the same token, there is absolutely no compelling philosophical or scientific
    reason to suppose that brain death, however total and irreversible, is ipso
    facto the death of a human being as such . . .
