Theory, Research, and Application: Some Critical Issues for Thanatology.
Kastenbaum, Robert
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v18 n4 p397-410 1987-88
Illustrates current status of thanatological research by examining the most popular line of empirical investigation (death anxiety as assessed by self-report scales) and the most sweeping theoretical approach yet proposed (Freud's death instinct). Notes that the most popular vein of research and most spectacular theory have almost no relationship to each other. (Author/NB)
