On Suicide by David Hume 1854 (Hume claims that suicide can be compared to retiring from society and becoming a total recluse, which is not normally considered to be immoral)

Essays of Schopenhauer 1897 (As far as I can see, it is only the followers of monotheistic, that is of Jewish, religions that regard suicide as a crime. This is the more striking as there is no forbiddance of it, or even positive disapproval of it, to be found either in the New Testament or the Old; so that teachers of religion have to base their disapprobation of suicide on their own philosophical grounds)

Psychotherapy including the history of the use of mental influence by James Joseph Walsh (has a section on Suicide)

The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1902 (this is an epistolary novel, and when it was first released in the late 18th century led to a rash of copycat suicides. As a matter of interest, a Hungarian suicide song released in the 1930's called Gloomy Sunday had a similar effect. You can find that song on youtube, I especially like the Sarah Mclachlan version.)

Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton 1915 (Not only is suicide a sin, it is the sin. It Is the ultimate and absolute evil, the refusal to take an interest in existence; the refusal to take the oath of loyalty to life. The man who kills a man, kills a man. The man who kills himself, kills all men; as far as he is concerned he wipes out the world.)

Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Ethics by Immanuel Kant 1895 (from wikipedia: Immanuel Kant argues against suicide in Fundamental Principles of The Metaphysic of Morals. In accordance with the second formulation of his categorical imperative, Kant argues that, "He who contemplates suicide should ask himself whether his action can be consistent with the idea of humanity as an end in itself." Kant's theory looks at the act only, and not at its outcomes and consequences, and claims that one is ethically required to consider whether one would be willing to universalise the act: to claim everyone should behave that way. Kant argues that choosing to commit suicide entails considering oneself as a means to an end, which he rejects: a person, he says, must not be used "...merely as means, but must in all actions always be considered as an end in himself." Therefore, it is unethical to commit suicide to satisfy oneself.)

Suicide by GA Shurtleff 1877 (Let me say, then, that sane persons do commit suicide, and that an act of self-destruction is not, in itself, conclusive evidence of mental unsoundness.)

Neurotic books and newspapers as factors in the mortality of suicide and crime by Edward Phelps 1911

The mind of Shakspeare as exhibited in his works by Aaron A Morgan 1860
(It is interesting to note that Shakespeare's most famous bit has to do with Suicide: "To be, or not to be; that is the question:
Whether't is nobler in the mind, to suffer The stings and arrows of outrageous fortune; Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And, by opposing, end them?")
