In this paper the author attempts to show that any system of thought which absolutely refuses to countenance suicide as a rational possibility is either irresponsibly optimistic or utterly immoral. Admitting the right to take one’s life under some circumstances, the author attempts to sketch some of the cardinal doctrines of a theory of moral education designed to make suicide less prevalent in other trying moments and situations.
