    The book also provides an empathetic psychological and philosophical understanding of how people cope with death and dying as well as other forms of adversity in a fundamentally random, unguided. Death in literature is a varied thing, just as is death in society. Death is also an inescapable destiny for each of us as individuals and, for this reason, has always permeated our thoughts at all levels, from the immediate sense of devastation that personal bereavement gives us to the ways in which we manage the fact of death by pushing it.

    Using course materials from Death and Dying, I will discuss the idea that death is something to be feared. I will use course material from Block 1, The Social Context of Death and Dying, focusing on units 1 and 2. I will provide evidence of arguments for and against this notion and consider other attitudes of how these views are formed by society. On Death and Dying began as a theoretical book, an interdisciplinary study of our fear of death and our inevitable acceptance of it. It introduced the world to the now-famous five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. On Grief and Grieving applies these stages to the process of grieving and weaves together theory, inspiration, and practical advice, all based on Kübler.

For this episode of the MIT Press podcast, I spoke with Troyer, who directs the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath, about his new book, which charts the relationship of the dead body with technology through history, from 19th-century embalming machines to the death-prevention technologies of also discussed the growing field of death studies, how our relationship to.
