The Challenges of Aging and Dying Well

2020 INDIES Winner
Silver, Grief/Grieving (Adult Nonfiction)

"The Evening of Life" provides an interdisciplinary examination of the challenges of aging and dying well. It calls for a re-envisioning of cultural concepts, practices, and virtues that embraces decline, dependency, and finitude rather than stigmatizes them. Bringing together the work of sociologists, anthropologists, philosophers, theologians, and medical practitioners, this collection of essays develops a set of conceptual tools to discuss the current challenges posed to aging and dying well.
