The evolution of death and dying

Via Mind Hacks
The New Yorker has a wonderful article on the psychology of death and dying which is carefully woven into the curious life story of psychiatrist Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross, the originator of the 'stage' model of grief.

If you only read one popular article on grief, you'd do a lot worse than reading this carefully researched and sensitively written piece which journeys through both the social and cultural rituals of dying and how psychological theories have changed over the years.


Article: Good Grief:Is there a better way to be bereaved?
