End of Life Issues: Interdisciplinary and Multidimensional Perspectives
Brian De Vries
Springer, Jan 1, 1999 - Psychology - 386 pages
The complexity of life is mirrored in, and elaborated by, the complexity of dying, death, and bereavement - perhaps not surprising if one views life and death as complementary processes, omnipresent and opposing sides of the same construct. Evidence of this complexity is readily apparent in the burgeoning discourse surrounding end of life issues.
