LIBS 629 - DEATH AND DYING: A CROSS-CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE
Throughout human experience, death has been a vital concern. This is true in both the ancient and modern worlds, in small scale societies and contemporary industrial giants. This course investigates the meaning of human morality to both social systems and individual experience. Changing historical patterns and contemporary development in diverse cultures will be studied. Students will be encouraged to look deeply into values and ethical considerations and to develop a respect and appreciation for the diversity of human experience. This leads to a deeper joy and appreciation of life, an examination of life, an examination of the Socratic dictum, "know thyself," and consideration of the question, "how then shall I live?"
