Communication from the Dead: Posthumous Emails
Death is confusing, we can’t deny that – but imagine receiving an email from someone you believe to have passed away. What would you do?
There are many ethical dilemmas associated with one remaining alive digitally – especially when their loved ones aren’t aware. What if they knew information that only they would’ve known? Today on Drive, we spoke to Patrick Stokes, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Deakin University. He came onto the show to talk to us about communicating with the dead, and the ethical issues surrounding it.
