  • THE "I" OF THE STORMby David Lester

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 0.00

    We cannot explain why people kill themselves. There are no necessary or sufficient causes for suicide, so rather than explaining suicide (looking for causes), perhaps we can understand suicide, at least in one individual, a phenomenological approach. This book begins by examining the diaries from eight individuals who killed themselves.... more...

  • Suicide In Menby David Lester

    Charles C Thomas 2014; US$ 59.95

    The goal of this book is to explore the phenomenon of suicide, focusing on males who are at a greater risk than females.

Attention is drawn to the lack of help-seeking behavior exhibited by men as well as the... more...

  • Is There Life After Death?by David Lester

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2005; US$ 39.95

    People have believed in the existence of life after death throughout human history and in all regions of the world. Mere belief, however, does not make it true. What is the empirical evidence for life after death? Has any significant research been conducted, and if so, what conclusions does it suggest? In fact there exists a large body of research... more...

  • Suicide as a Dramatic Performanceby David Lester

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Each suicide is as unique as the individuals involved, especially if one examines the nature of the act and to what extent these acts can be viewed as a theatrical performance. Focusing on the dramatic aspects of suicide may seem tangential to the physical and mental pain experienced by those who try to kill themselves, but dramatic aspects often provide... more...

  • On Multiple Selvesby David Lester

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    On Multiple Selves refutes the idea that a human being has a single unified self. Instead, David Lester argues, the mind is made up of multiple selves, and this is a normal psychological phenomenon. Lester expands on his earlier work on the phenomenon, illuminating how a "multiple-self theory of the mind" is critically necessary to understanding human... more...
