The inevitability of aging and dying doesn`t make accepting and adjusting to their truths any easier. This collection of essays probes these truths from various angles: philosophical, religious, socio-ethical and medical. Discourses on Aging and Dying is a topical book—it comes at a time when, on the one hand, the world is witnessing an increase in the percentage of the aged population, and, on the other, traditional practices of caring for the aged are being replaced by more impersonal, state-driven methods. This well organized discourse explores philosophical traditions—Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic perspectives—to explain the concept of life and death, and offers strategies for coping with aging and dying. It then delves into the socio-ethical issues related to these in the Indian context—India, with its huge population, poor bio-medical facilities and the radically changing attitudes towards the aged, is facing a crisis. The final section of the book addresses a pressing problem confronting Indian society: end-of-life care. Printed Pages: 272.
