Our Six Fears of Dying : How They Drive Our Lives
Our personal relationship with death defines our moral codes, relationships, bodies, the society we strive for, our supernatural beliefs and our ability to risk, relax, trust, divulge and love. When we unpack our fears of dying - which this book describes as six fears - it is clear they drive our lives, mostly in a positive way. This book takes a very personal perspective from someone given a breast cancer diagnosis at a young age, and examines those fears from a historical and philosophical perspective.
