Is There a Duty to Die?

British Broadcasting Corporation Home. It sounds an odd question - most of us would say 'no', except perhaps for military and similar personnel in certain circumstances. But some cultures, and some modern thinkers, think that there is a duty on a person to die in certain circumstances. After all, when we say someone did their duty when they gave up their life to save others, we often mean that they did an act of heroism, well beyond the call of duty. The philosopher John Hardwig re-opened this debate with an article in He says that an individual is not the only person who will be affected by decisions over whether they live or die.

The Hardwig thesis applies when our continued life places an excessive burden on those near and dear. Understood in this manner, he is broadly right, as long as we understand this kind of duty as not entailing enforceable requirements, like the rule against murder, but rather as being part of our commitments to the people we would be imposing burdens on.
