Thanatology Death Studies via distance learning

 

Thanatology is the scientific study of death. This program deals with the understanding of death and how it affects individuals. Thanatology does not include palliative care, the medical treatment for dying individuals, or forensic studies. It focuses on grief and bereavement issues, counseling, and the religious concepts of dying and death from the perspective of both the dying and bereaved. Thanatology intends to support and care those facing or coping with death, or dealing with the terminally ill.

Applying Kant's categorical imperative to a relationship problem and then Hindusim to a midlife crisis; as though they were creams for different parts of the body may strike thoughtful people as contrived. The real message is that it is necessary to have your own philosophy, because the unexamined life is not worth living (or a least a lot harder,). This course may prove invaluable to people who feel as though they are alone, struggling with their problems, in an incoherent universe.
Academic Supervisor: Robert Burton Bradley
