A morte como horizonte antropológico

Translated title of the contribution: Death as antropological horizon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Anthropologically, all human experience is just an experience of life. Within this common, universal human dimension, no human being can know what death is as an experience. There is no other experience that can be considered as our own other than the fore mentioned. There is, therefore, no «experience of death». Nevertheless, there is an experience of «dying», which can be reported. One such experience is presented in the form of consciousness: absolute loss of consciousness.
