AN OUTLINE OF THE AXIOLOGY OF DEATH. AN ATTEMPT AT PHILOSOPHICAL DESCRIPTION OF A SENSE OF DEATH
Despite the obvious destructive character of human death, the author searches here for its positive value. He describes various attitudes towards other people’s death: fear, respect, repugnance, indifference, mourning, fascination. He claims however, that the subject of a sense-giving activity is “my own death” and considers possible approaches to it: fear, revolt, desire of death, suicide. He emphasizes the need of ars moriendi in the contemporary life.
