Be the first to ask a question about Death, Society, and Human Experience. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I read this for annd Psychology of Death and Dying course. While it was very comprehensive and had a lot of fantastic information about all aspects of death and dying, I had to wade through endless pages of random filler to get to it.

Mar 06, Melissa rated it it was ok Shelves: While the information in this book was useful in a class on “Death and Dying,” qnd fact that it was written in first person and contained numerous references to socitey author’s prior works made it somewhat unpleasant to read. There was also a lot of “fluff” that had to be read through to get to the facts.

Jun 19, Carter rated it really liked it Shelves: Kastenbaum provides a thorough primer for death education. I appreciated the opportunities for reflection included in the text. I think one of the most important aspects of death education is questioning and exploring one’s own beliefs and perspectives. There were also several additional sources of kastembaum included throughout the text, providing the reader with a direction from which to follow-up on key topics.

He weaves in information from various religions, cultures, philosophies and histories. A college student could very well earn Western Civ credit by Kastenbaum, who is a death educator and thanatologist, presents the 10th edition of his textbook by packing a lot of valuable materials into one convenient title. A college student could very well earn Western Civ credit by reading this book. Sometimes I was a little annoyed with his take on major world religions and major philosophical thoughts because I felt they were more his interpretations than fact.
Nevertheless, the book holds great value for guiding people down the heart-wrenching paths of death and dying. He also clearly has compassion for people’s suffering, and he’s trying to offer information and strategies to help people manage their grief and losses. I recommend this, but it’s hard reading. I don’t imagine that I would qnd made it through all the chapters if it wasn’t an assigned textbook. I probably would have kastenvaum it as a reference instead, reading chapters experoence order to manage my own experiences with death and dying or reading chapters in order to support and comfort others.
Feb experiencd, Lynda rated it liked it Shelves: A good survey text on death and dying from a cross-cultural perspective.
