This article briefly discusses the relationship between life and death. Understanding of this relationship has changed over the centuries, but this article focuses primarily on contemporary issues. The analysis makes reference to the texts of Max Scheler and Arthur Schopenhauer, as well as to the poetry of Rilke. This indicates that a human being should accept the necessity of death. Avoiding the truth, or attempting to take control over death – which is sometimes suggested by contemporary culture and technology – can be devastating for life
