In this commentary on Lokhandwala & Westefeld’s article (see SIEC #990084), Werth provides alternative perspectives to several of their points. Specifically, he reviews what he believes to be some of the meta-issues involved, examines a few of the particular points raised by the authors, & then discusses concerns with the research often cited to question the possibility of rational suicide.
