15+ Thanatology Books for Free! [PDF]

Human beings have always had a relationship with death. However, it is not usually experienced as a normal process of life, but as something undesirable and even repudiatory. To encourage a different view, we have created a selection of books on thanatology in PDF format so that those interested in the subject can better understand it.

It is possible to go through a terminal illness comfortably, accepting the circumstances and surrounded by respect and love. The way to achieve this is revealed in this collection of books on thanatology in PDF format and with which you will be able to study this interesting discipline.

Thanatology had its origin in the investigations of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross who with a group of seminarians observed and learned about the experiences of the terminally ill. She conducted the interviews and the seminarians took notes and observed.

Eventually, this developed into a seminar on death, which consisted of a large group of students observing the interviews and then having discussions about the information obtained from them. It soon became accredited as a course at the University of Chicago School of Medicine.

Thanatology is understood as the multidisciplinary science that seeks to alleviate the pain and hopelessness of the terminally ill and their loved ones. To this end, it seeks to provide a comfortable environment for a dignified and peaceful death, respecting beliefs and allowing for decision making.

Thanatology can be studied as a course, that is, the thanatologist can have any profession, although preferably in the field of health (doctors, psychologists, nurses, among others). Generally, their work is carried out in hospitals and hospices.
