In a work of cross-cultural interdisciplinary philosophy, Burley explores what it means to believe in rebirth or reincarnation, how holding some version of his belief bears upon and manifests in believers' lives, and hence also how the belief relates to ethical behavior and values. He does not propose to establish whether rebirth really happens or whether people should believe in it, he says, only to clarify the meaning and significance of believing that it does.
