Writing a Philosophy of Death
This class will be about death, writing about death, and the history of thinking philosophically about death. Find new or unexpected ways of expressing the one thing we all deeply share in common. We have lost the ones we love, and we also live every day with the full awareness that one day we, too, will be only a memory for those we leave behind.
