Brian Champagne 2/9/07 Zaner R.M. Death Beyond Whole-Brain Criterion . Tennessee: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1988. pgs. 171-189. Annotated Bibliography on “Brains and Persons” The chapter entitled Brains and Persons discusses a few enlightening points in support of the neocortical position of death, while also providing some helpful resources for finding more information on the topic of personhood. In this chapter there is a critique of a philosopher named Veache who wrote an entry in a book where he speculates that humans are fundamentally social animals and that people without the ability to think, feel and most importantly interact with other individuals have impaired their capacity for human hood. He also believes that humans are the junction of soul and body and that the irreversible separation of this entity deems a person dead. Another point that Richard M. Zaner alludes to is the inability to come to a conclusion about what characteristics comprise personhood.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
