9780006373841: Construction of Life and Death

The way in which we perceive death shapes the fundamental pattern of our lives, the very core of our existence. Fear death, and we live pessimistically in its shadow; learn to accept it, and life's possibilities open up as splendidly varied, infinitely exciting, precious beyond price. Drawing on personal interviews and her insight into the practices of psychotherapy today, the author reveals how we structure our lives - how, out of the formless chaos of reality, we give meaning and purpose to our existence through the influences of different cultures, languages and beliefs. From the author of "The Successful Self", "Beyond Fear" and "Wanting Everything".

From the Back Cover:

The way in which we perceive death shapes the fundamental pattern of our lives, the very core of our existence.

Fear death, and we live pessimistically in its shadow. Learn to accept it, and life's possibilities open up to us as splendidly varied, infinitely exciting, precious beyond price.

Drawing on personal interviews and her deep insight into the practices of psychotherapy today, eminent psychologist Dorothy Rowe reveals how we structure our lives – how, out of the formless chaos of reality, we give meaning and purpose to our existence through the influences of different cultures, languages and beliefs.

With wisdom, warmth and humour, Dorothy Rowe challenges us to find our own ways of living with the uncertainty of death, encouraging us to embrace the freedom of a life without fear.
