Yale Abstract

  1. Professor Kagan explores the issue of how thinking about death may influence the way we live.
  2. Fear as an emotional response to death is discussed as well as whether it is appropriate and under what conditions.
  3. A distinction is made between fear of the process of dying, and fear of death itself and what may come when one is dead.
  4. Finally, a number of other negative emotions are considered as possible appropriate responses to death and dying, such as anger, sadness, and sorrow.
