Death: A Philosophical Inquiry (Paperback)

£34.99

Synopsis

From Nietzsche's pronouncement that "God is dead" to Camus' argument that suicide is the fundamental question of philosophy, the concept of death plays an important role in existential phenomenology, reaching from Kierkegaard to Heidegger and Marcel.











This book explores the phenomenology of death and offers a unique way into the phenomenological tradition. Paul Fairfield examines the following key topics:























the modern denial of death

Heidegger's important concept of 'being-toward-death' and its centrality in phenomenological ideas, such as authenticity and existence

the philosophical significance of death rituals: what explains the imperative toward ritual around death, and what is its purpose and meaning?

death in an age of secularism

the philosophy and ethics of suicide

death as a mystery rather than a philosophical problem to be solved

the relationship between hope and death.











Death: A Philosophical Inquiry is essential reading for students of phenomenology and existentialism, and will also be of interest to students in related fields such as religion, anthropology and the medical humanities.
