Description

A pragmatic philosophical framework based on a radically empirical attitude toward life and death.  D. Micah Hester takes seriously the complexities of experiences and argues that when making end-of-life decisions, healthcare providers ought to pay close attention to the narratives of patients and the communities they inhabit so that their dying processes embody their life stories.
