To help me find out, please fill out this survey. Note, this survey is specifically for people who are philosophers (including graduate students)  https://surveys.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eRiMII67vCsFOPH

The survey is conducted for my Immortality Project grant The philosophy and psychology of afterlife beliefs. I’ll post a digest of the results on this blog.

    What is a philosopher?
    Do you mean that “this survey is specifically for” people who formally studied philosophy, or for people who think philosophically, regardless of how long or what they studied?
    People who have studied philosophy are no more likely to be philosophers than people who have studied Literature are likely to be authors.

    • I mean the narrower sense: people who have either had significant training in philosophy (current academic philosophers, or others with a philosophy PhD) or are getting such training (graduate students). I don’t mean people with only an undergraduate degree in philosophy. I’m also going to launch a survey for non-philosophers for comparison.
