Martin Riemer is a writer and neuroscientist with a longtime interest in the philosophy of mind. Born in Germany, he currently lives in the Netherlands, where he leads a research project on the nature of age-related changes in the perception of time.
In his novel „Post Mortem“ - released in September 2018 - he reflects on the vague boundary between science and philosophy, on the perception of time and on the various conceptions of infinity and immortality. The basic idea in „Post Mortem“ is the human longing for immortality, a desire that can be achieved in very different ways. Or not at all.
