Volume 19: Death and Mortality: From Individual to Communal Perspectives


COLLeGIUm’s 19th volume discusses mortality at the communal and personal levels of experience. The volume “Death and Mortality” emerges from the Human Mortality project (Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies 2011-2013), which provided a framework for discussing death, dying and mortality in an interdisciplinary network. This volume brings together, in particular, anthropological, philosophical, theological and historical perspectives. The writers - including Douglas Davies, Jeff McMahan, Kathryn Edwards and many others - discuss how (good/bad) death can be defined, understood and experienced in different cultural, political, social and historical contexts
