The Courage to Live

First published as The Construction of Life and Death

The way in which we perceive death shapes the fundamental patten of our lives, the very core of our existence.

Fear death and we live pessimistically in its shadow; learn to accept it and life's possibilities open up as splendidly varied, infinitely exciting, precious beyond price.

Drawing on personal interviews and her deep insight into the practices of psychotherapy today, eminent psychologist Dorothy Rowe reveals how we structure our lives - how, out of the formless chaos of reality we give meaning and purpose to our existence through the influences of different cultures, languages and beliefs.

With true warmth and humour, Dorothy Rowe challenges us to find out own ways of living with the uncertainty of death, encouraging is to embrace the freedom of a life without fear.
