Western Attitudes toward Death

From the Middle Ages to the Present

Reveals the change in Western man's conception and acceptance of death as evidenced in customs, literature, and art since medieval times.

About the Authors

Philippe Ariès (1914-1984) was a French historian best known for his book Centuries of Childhood, the seminal study that launched historical scholarship on childhood and family life in the Western world.

Reviews

"Ariès traces Western man's attitudes toward mortality from the early medieval conception of death as the familiar collective destiny of the human race to the modern tendency, so pronounced in industrial societies, to hide death as if it were an embarrassing family secret."—Newsweek

"An astounding story, told with the incisiveness and mastery characteristic of Ariès's work."—Robert Darnton, New York Review of Books
