Biography


Adam Buben is a University Lecturer (Universitair Docent) in Philosophy at Leiden University. His research—especially his first monograph, Meaning and Mortality in Kierkegaard and Heidegger: Origins of the Existential Philosophy of Death (2016)—has dealt with the topic of death in the history of philosophy. His more recent work—especially his second monograph, Existentialism and the Desirability of Immortality (2022)—considers the varied impact of technological developments on the philosophy of death. He is particularly interested in philosophical questions related to mind-uploading and other forms of digital immortality, life-extension, cryonics, transhumanism, and assisted dying. These fascinating issues have him working across continental, analytic, and Asian traditions. Before coming to the Netherlands, Adam spent time studying and teaching in Denmark, Guam, Japan, and the US. He currently offers historically grounded courses in both Asian and European traditions.
