"Love and Death" Discussion Questions

Dan Moller
  1. Moller holds that resilient responses to loss make one unable to grasp the full significance of the loss. Do you agree? Why or why not?
  2. Explicate the point Moller is making when he imagines super-resilient and sub-resilient aliens. Do you agree with Moller that any deviation from the sub-resilient raises difficult and painful questions? Why or why not?
  3. Moller claims that resilience in the face of loss doesn’t indicate anything about whether we value or care about the object we’ve lost. Do you find this convincing? Why or why not?
