A riveting, incisive, and wide-ranging book about the Right to Die movement, and the doctors, patients, and activists at the heart of this increasingly urgent issue. As much of the world’s population grows older, the quest for a “good death,” has become a significant issue. For many, the right to die often means the right to die with dignity. The Inevitable moves beyond margins of the law to the people who are meticulously planning their final hours—far from medical offices, legislative chambers, hospital ethics committees, and polite conversation—and the people who help them, loved ones or clandestine groups on the Internet known as the “euthanasia underground.”Katie Engelhart, a veteran journalist, focuses on six people representing ...

Reflecting on the Inevitable Book Description :

"Death studies have, over the last twenty years, witnessed a flourishing of research and scholarship particularly in areas such as dying and bereavement, cultural practices and fear of dying. But, despite its importance, a specific focus on the nature of personal mortality has attracted surprisingly little attention. This book breaks new ground by bringing together available ideas and research on the meaning of one's own death. Its content is organized around the question of how an ongoing relationship might be possible when the threat of consciousness coming to an end points to an unthinkable and unspeakable nothingness. The book then argues that, despite this threat, an ongoing relationship with one's own death is still possible by means of concept...

The Inevitable Hour Book Description :

At the turn of the twentieth century, medicine’s imperative to cure disease increasingly took priority over the demand to relieve pain and suffering at the end of life. Filled with heartbreaking stories, The Inevitable Hour demonstrates that professional attention and resources gradually were diverted from dying patients. Emily K. Abel challenges three myths about health care and dying in America. First, that medicine has always sought authority over death and dying; second, that medicine superseded the role of families and spirituality at the end of life; and finally, that only with the advent of the high-tech hospital did an institutional death become dehumanized. Abel shows that hospitals resisted accepting dying patients and often worked hard t...

The Inevitable Versus Destiny Book Description :

NEW BOOK BY DAMON WHITE. THE INEVITABLE VERSUS DESTINY is philosophical fiction, whereby, the two characters clash for conceptual superiority. The Inevitable, a force characterized by an insatiable desire for power and Destiny, an idea characterized by a benevolence to edify others by sharing wisdom and more, square off in face-offs. Example:"Destiny Reveals so that other revelations continue to open. The Inevitable Discloses so that other disclosures remain closed."

Destiny is going to be used, Destiny just wants to be used properly. All too often we try to slip in The Inevitable in place of Our Destiny,...
