Western Attitudes toward Death from the Middle Ages to the Present. Translated by Patricia M. Ranum

Publisher: Baltimore, Johns Hopkins UP [1974]. Johns Hopkins Symposia in Comparative History.
111 p., index, illus. "I divide the topics under discussion here into four parts. The first chapter is essentially synchronic. It covers a long chain of centuries, approximately a millennium. I have called it: 'Tamed Death'. In the second chapter we shall encounter diachrony. What changes occurred during the Middle Ages, beginning approximately with the twelfth century, began to modify the achronic attitude toward death, and what can be the meaning of these changes? The final two chapters will be devoted to contemporary attitudes, which are reflected in the cult of cemeteries and tombs and in the interdict laid upon death by industrialized societies." In his Preface to this series of lectures, Oreste Ranum calls Ariès an "outstanding pioneer in the fields of social and cultural history". Cream cloth, soiled, traces of library tape on spine; VG.

Roving widely over the cosmos which imprisons man, Dr. Eiseley, in bold and poetic prose, explores man's nature, his conception of time, and his first intrusion into space."
