Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The article discusses the definition of death from metaphysical and biological points of view. Also, the paper analyzes various criteria of human death. The considerations are based on a methodological assumption that first of all a proper definition of death should be given, and then criteria assisting in recognizing a state defined as already existent should be set. An anatomical (neurological) criterion of human death is characterized as a real state of patient's death when irreversible atrophy of all cerebral functions has been diagnosed.
