Can Philosophy Help In Dealing With Grief?
"At times like these, philosophers are of limited use because when they have talked about dying they have tended to focus on what it means for the one who dies. ... A much more useful philosophy would help us to prepare for the deaths of others. I have never been sure that philosophy does a good job of that. But perhaps a philosophical outlook can help us make sense of death when it comes close to us." Aeon 07/05/13
