Suicide: The Philosophical Dimensions. This book is a great introduction to the philosophical arguments surrounding the moral permissibility of suicide as well as physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia.

Suicide: The Philosophical Dimensions. The author, Michael Cholbi, provides a detailed, even-handed examination of the arguments on all sides of the issues, and, as is appropriate for an issue that is so complex and so controversial, he does not arrive at any over-arching, definitive conclusions.

Michael Cholbi’s Suicide: The Philosophical Dimensions is a well-written, thoughtful introduction to a sensitive and perennial moral issue. The work is a valuable tool to undergraduates and those seeking to understand the standard positions on suicide that will continue to influence ethical discussions about, among other things, what the definition of suicide is, whether the taking of one’s own life is permissible, and if suicide can be a duty under any set of circumstances.

philosophical aspects of suicide and arguments for and against i. Jean Améry, in his book On Suicide: a Discourse on Voluntary Death (originally published in German in 1976), provides a moving insight into the suicidal mind. He argues forcefully and almost romantically that suicide represents the ultimate freedom of humanity, justifying the act with phrases such as "we only arrive at ourselves in a freely chosen death" and lamenting "ridiculously everyday life and its alienation". Améry killed himself in 1978.

Cholbi teaches at my school, an engineering school. I'm an engineer and a philsosophy major -- I declared the second major after a suicide attempt, but later learned my little old Cal Poly Pomona had the philosophical master of suicide on campus.
This is very engaging. He'll make you question the line between "alive" and "dead". And of course, the "right to self" versus "duty to others".
Protip: Cholbi is Kantian

This book is a great collection of philosophical thoughts on the topic of suicide. Nice to have them all in one book. Cholbi is also a respected contributor to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
