  • Product Description
 

This monograph takes up and explores philosophical approaches and attitudes towards death, particularly those of fear and acceptance. I begin with the psychological truth that certain kinds of life seem to actuate and eventuate into fear of death. This life-style is characterized by control and a (false) sense of security, and, my thesis, is that it is best overcome by the recognition and affirmation of the subjective meaning that can actually be had in life; namely, love. For those who need further persuading, I examine the metaphysical nature of death, and the arguments, beliefs, and corresponding attitudes that are actually sustainable in light of its metaphysical status. I conclude that the life of Socrates, as one that is characterized by a loving pursuit of truth, is a genuine affirmation that stands in the face of death and truly enables acceptance and overcoming of fear without delusion, aspiration, or pretence.
