INTD Pushing Up Daisies: Western Perspectives on Death and Dying

Our human fascination with death is most likely due to the distant shadow of our own demise. Our earthly situation offers each of us a role, not only in our own death, but in the deaths of those we know and love. As each individual is unique and multidimensional, so is each death. This course will provide an interdisciplinary approach to understanding death and dying, grief and bereavement. We will create an intellectual tapestry by weaving together perspectives from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and the arts. An examination of ethical and moral issues that are justified by each discipline will be explored.
