Death is a constant element of human life. The awareness of mortality constitutes an essential factor in understanding life. Since time immemorial it is a vital reference point for philosophical systems that attempt to answer the question: How should one live? And they do so from the perspective of human mortality. In Western culture the thanatological subject matter is rarely represented, death does not match the modern lifestyle. Thus, at school, in the family, in the media discussions of death and passing away are either not entered into or the issue is distorted by ignorance, vulgarization or demonization. However, daily life confronts the human being with the death of others and also provokes reflection on one’s own mortality. The need to honestly confront the issue of death requires taking appropriate action in the area of bringing up children, education, popularization and, if need be, also therapy, which will help people to cope with the awareness of the death of others and prepare them for their own death.
