Praise

Online Afterlives offers a vivid philosophical meditation on the ways that digital media are changing people’s relationship to mortality. Combining profound theoretical insights with examples from popular culture, Sisto eloquently shows how ‘digital ghosts’ make it harder to deny death itself.” – Tamara Kneese, Assistant Professor of Media Studies, University of San Francisco

“Sisto takes the reader on a whirlwind journey through philosophical concepts, fictions, legal cases and digital data service providers that all combine to create the contemporary fascination with death, legacy, and immortality! A must-read for the curious mind.” – Stacey Pitsillides, Vice-Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellow, School of Design, Northumbria University

“…an eye-opening study of an underexamined aspect of the internet age.” — Publishers Weekly
