CORE 002 SC - Death


What is death? Why do we care about it? Is death bad? Why do we mourn the dead? What ought to be done with the dead? Has death changed? Can one be dead? The definition of death is not obvious and its criterion has changed over time (soul departure, cessation of breath, cessation of heartbeat, cessation of brain waves, etc.) for a variety of complex reasons (including religious, scientific, practical, political). Drawing upon philosophical, historical, psychological, religious, and pop culture perspectives, we will investigate death.
