Details

Death is, simply, the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living being. In society, however, the nature of death and awareness of mortality has, for thousands of years, been a topic of concern of world religions and philosophical inquiry. So, how does society handle death? Is death a taboo subject? Do we avoid discussing mortality to the point of denial? How could death and dying be treated differently, and what would a more accepting attitude towards death look like? Finally, does a person have a right to choose how and when they die? Or is this only permissible under certain circumstances? How would this be decided? This and more will be discussed. Come join us!
