Heidegger and a hippo…

An entertaining look into the philosophy on the subject of death inspired by Ernest Becker’s Denial of Death (1973). A must read! Find it here.

Hell. While we’re at it let me throw in a little outtake from the book, some lines by Heidegger:

“If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and
face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety
of death and the pettiness of life-and only then
will I be free to become myself”
