The author claims that contemporary philosophers, with the exception of the existentialists, ignore the subject of death. He reviews works from past philosophers, to whom death was a major theme. He states that some contemporary philosophers may be able to avoid thinking of death because they are able to reconcile their thought to religious doctrine; or, because they are generally indifferent to death. 13 Ref.
