xvi, 351 pp. "Even after looking hard in the literature, it is surprising how slim is the systematized knowledge about death. Far too littlel heed has been given to assessing thoroughly the implications of the meaning of death. There is no book on the American scene which offers a multi-faceted approach to its problems. The purpose of this volume is a first attempt to narrow that gap by coming to grips with the problem of death as seen by philosophers, religionists, and scientists from varying bases. It is not an organized text but rather a series of spotlights beamed on a common area. The contributers encompass the specific fields of anthropology, art, literature, medicine, philosophy, physiology, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychology, and religion. Those who seek an integration of the available information are likely to be disappointed. There is no pretense of providing definitive answers. We do perceive the book. however, as providing a groundwork of reflection and information that will illuminate issues and stimulate fresh insights, suggest therapeutic and practical possibilities, and direct the way toward future research requirements."
