Yuichi Minemura, Ph.D.

Yuichi Minemura's research interests are bioethics, metaphysics, and ontology. He examines how we begin to exist, persist, and cease to exist in virtue of the analysis of personal identity. In 2017, he earned a Ph.D. in the Department of Philosophy, SUNY University at Buffalo. The title of his dissertation is ‘A Metaphysical Analysis of the Contemporary Brain Death Controversies.’ Minemura has published several articles on the basis of the arguments discussed in each chapter of the dissertation.
