Death and Design is a book about death and design in the broadest sense. The idea for the book came after reading Ernest Becker’s The Denial of Death.
Death and Design has several goals.
1. It introduces you to the theories of Ernest Becker.
2. It helps you to become more aware and accepting of the reality of your mortality.
3. It strengthens your sense of death transcendence in nondestructive ways.
4. It hopes to start a dialogue in regards to our denials of death.
