To be, or not to be: a study of suicide
"The problem of suicide has so many aspects and such far-reaching implications that no short treatise can possibly cover all of them. The subject is bound up with the values that the individual and the community attach to life, with existing attitudes towards death, with racial habits and customs, with prevailing standards of life and the variations from such standards. Any attempt to deal completely with a question that has so many ramifications would baffle the skill of the most thoughtful student of human affairs. It is a study that concerns equally the physician and the lawyer, the teacher and the social worker, the statesman and the moralist, the priest and the philosopher.
