On Our Way: The Final Passage Through Life and Death
Robert Kastenbaum (au)
Life often has been envisioned as a journey, the river of time carrying us inexorably toward the unknown country. We increasingly turn to myth and magic, ritual and virtual reality, cloning and cryostasis in the hope of eluding the reality of the inevitable end. Here is a fresh exploration of the final passage through life and perhaps through death. Drawing upon a range of observations -- from psychology, anthropology, religion, biology, and personal experience -- Kastenbaum re-envisions life’s forward-looking progressions, from early-childhood bedtime rituals to the many small rehearsals we stage for our final separation. “Enriches our understanding of life as a never-ending passage.” Illustrations.
