English | 2015 | ISBN: 0300217005 | 352 pages | PDF | 2,6 MB
In this beautifully written personal meditation on life & living, Raymond Tallis reflects on the fundamental fact of existence: that it is finite. Inspired by E. M. Forsters thought that "Death destroys a man but the idea of it saves him," Tallis invites readers to look back on their lives from a unique st&point: ones own future corpse. From this perspective, he shows, the world now vacated can be seen most clearly in all its richness & complexity.
