Description

Death. The Big D. Giving up the ghost. Buying the farm. The concept has haunted, obsessed, and fascinated humans since the beginning of time, and Big Thinkers from Saint Paul to Schopenhauer, Descartes to Dylan Thomas, Plato to Peggy Lee, have explored everything from angels to zombies and everything in between. Now Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein take us on a full tour of the history of how we approach death.
