Example text

Approaches to Ethics, p. 85. Lucretius, On the Nature of the Universe, p. 122. Nagel objects to this on the grounds that one can be affected or harmed even if one has no knowledge of the harm after one’s death. Nagel, Mortal Questions, pp. 1–10. Death and dying are different and must be distinguished. It is generally accepted that death is an event. Dying, on the other hand, is ambiguous and is considered to be a process rather than an event, which may take a long time. Furthermore, dying does not necessarily lead to death.

Superiority or victory is not the desired end in this form of existential relationship and interaction. qxd 19/11/07 9:04 am Page 39 Karl Jaspers’ Philosophy of Existence 39 can also be described as a ‘struggle’ of mutual understanding.

In other words, it is not internalised or regarded as a personal issue. In its indistinct form, death loses its philosophical impact. However, we cannot entirely ignore death as it often takes place around us and thus we inevitably experience the death of the Other. This encounter with the death of the Other can be experienced at different levels. In The Outsider, Camus identifies and expresses a cool and detached reaction to death where the main character, Meursault, behaves as a totally detached observer without any kind of emotion in the event of his mother’s death.
