Description
 
What is death? Why are we born only to die? Does death have meaning? What happens to our “selves” after we die? Here, biologist  Volk considers these questions & offers alternatives to many traditional religious explanations. Embarks on a personal exploration of the meaning of death & its implications about the meaning of life. The answers that he discovers are surprising, diverse, & life-affirming. Volk examines the phenomenon of death from organic, personal, & social points of view. He sheds light upon the life spans of creatures & the role of cell death in bodily health; contemplates the links among the personal confrontation with death, our brain, & consciousness; & probes the customs & rituals that surround death in various cultures.
