And yet, people do die, and people grieve. Join organizers for a discussion with UW-Green Bay Prof. Illene Cupit (Human Development, Psychology) and a scholar in the emerging filed of “Thanatology,” the study of death and dying. Is grief a universal phenomenon? Is it necessary to grieve, and if so, is it preferable to get psycho pharmaceutical or psychotherapeutic help? These are some of the issues to be discussed in this Philosophers’ Cafe (or “Death Cafe”).
