The author finds Kant’s position on suicide untenable & proposes a modified view which holds that the morally ideal person values life for its own sake, provided that that life does not fall below a certain level of unbearable pain & suffering. Hill, therefore, does not believe that suicide is almost always wrong; he believes that in some cases suicides are justifiable.(NBB)
