This books offers a philosophical exploration and assessment of the various ways in which human societies have confronted the question of death and mortality. In a very accessible style, the author considers religion's attempt to make sense of death, science's attempt to evade death, and philosophy's attempt to embrace death as a fundamental and defining moment of what it means to be human.
