To Die or Not To Die

Morir o no morir

A lucid reflection on death and the necessity of a dignified death in modern society. 

How does our society face death? How do we face it as individuals? What is a “good death” and how should it be regulated? What are the ethical limits of euthanasia as a mechanism for dignified death? How does society confront suicide? Do we tend to avoid the idea of our own mortality? Are rituals necessary to cope with grief? Do advances in biomedicine allow us to seriously contemplate the idea of immortality? This book addresses the issue of death in the contemporary world from a philosophical standpoint, and raises often uncomfortable but necessary questions while proposing answers for debate. 

«An expression of sharpness and the author’s sensibility, Morir o no morir is definitely a book to read and reread» (El País – Babelia).
