Axelrod, Charles David

Explores the prescription to pratice death in numerous ancient philosophical and religious texts, such as the Bardo Thodol (known to the English community as The Tibetan Book of the Dead), Plato's Phaedo, the writings of Epicurus, and certain segments of the Old Testament in an effort to locate its inherent rationality.
