內容簡介


每個人終將面臨死亡。

開啟關於死亡的討論與對話
探討人類和老化、疾病與死亡的持久戰役

現代死亡的意義,與往昔有何不同?
隨著現代醫療的進步,死亡變成垂死、瞬間的行為變成冗長的過程,生與死的界線也變得模糊。

隨著現代醫療進步,病患大多經過多年的殘疾、無數的治療與強烈的用藥,才會迎來死亡。現代對於死亡的最基本觀點──為何死亡、何時死亡、如何死亡,已與數十年前大相逕庭;同時,死亡的道德觀也已改變。現代科技改變的不僅是死亡的方式與時間,更是死亡本身。

本書作者為醫師,以科學探討死亡,從人體細胞到社會規模、從古代墓地到現代醫療設施,綜合豐富的臨床經驗、超過600項文獻引用,更包含與病患和諾貝爾獎得主的訪談,鼓勵醫護人員、病患與家屬以更開放、誠實的角度探討死亡。

There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today’s modern age. Dr. Haider Warraich is a young and brilliant new voice in the conversation about death and dying started by Dr. Sherwin Nuland and Atul Gawande. Dr. Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself.

The most basic aspects of dying―the whys, wheres, whens, and hows―are almost nothing like what they were mere decades ago. Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. Modern Death, Dr. Warraich’s debut book, will explore the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death.

Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, Modern Death will provide readers with an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences.
