i was wondering if anyone knows of any good philosophical writings on the topic of suicide? i've already read the essays by hume, schopenhauer, and kant. i'm aware of this source and have read most of what it contains: http://comp.uark.edu/~mpianal/suicide.htm. the best account i've come across on the subject has been jean amery's book; on suicide: discourses on voluntary death. also if you know of any novels that deal with or involve suicide, i would be interested in those also. i have read dostoevsky's, the possessed and encounted the suicidally obcessed kirillov . i've also read the sorrow's of young werther by goethe. if you know of any other philosophically insightful literary accounts of suicide it would be much appreciated if you could share them. also feel free to express your own philosophical views towards suicide, if you wish. i would be very pleased to hear any.
