Transcript of Paradigms of Death

Paradigms of Death How does society's view of death
effect the views of the individual? Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity enough not to fear death.
--Erik H. Erikson In what ways do people attempt to
accept or assimilate death into their lives?
Do they use death as a tool? A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
--Stewart Alsop Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
--Helen Keller Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
--Alice Thomas Ellis What does it mean to live in
a home surrounded by death? In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield.
--Douglas MacArthur Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
--Jean Cocteau Watch All
At Once Everyday we deal with death.
Some more than others. Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night. Suicide is man's way of telling God, "You can't fire me - I quit."
--Bill Maher The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.
--Lois McMaster Bujold One day we will all meet death.
We create the tensions and connections that we face with it. While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.
--Leonardo da Vinci It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls.
--Epicurus I decided to devote my life to telling the story because I felt that having survived I owe something to the dead. and anyone who does not remember betrays them again.
--Elie Wiesel All of these books have main characters who
experience a conflict with the society they live
in due to that society's view of death. Thoughout the stories told in these
texts the characters deal with death
being used as a tool. In each either
they are the victims or the users of
death. These books have settings or environments
that overflow with violence and death. They
explain how the characters learn to thrive in
such environments.
