Unlike many books about the afterlife, Life after Death makes no appeal to religious faith, divine revelation, or sacred texts. Drawing on some of the most powerful theories and trends in physics, evolutionary biology, science, philosophy, and psychology, D'Souza shows why the atheist critique of immortality is irrational. It is not only reasonable to believe in life after death; it is also beneficial. Such a belief gives depth and significance to this life, a path to happiness, and reason for hope.

Lisa Wilson traces the experiences of widows in a society that was developing a new ideology of proper female behavior. Using wills, court records, almshouse registers, correspondence, and diaries to explore the lives of widows during this period, Wilson alters our understanding of the diversity of women's experiences and adds a new dimension to the "separate spheres" explanation of gender roles. For this group of early American women, family concerns rather than the dictates of femininity lay at the core of their lives. The focus of this study, Chester County and Philadelphia between 1750 and 1850, provides a backdrop from which many types of widowed women can be observed. Philadelphia during this time was a growing urban center. With this growth came economic change and the beginning of industrialization. In Chester County, the traditional, family-centered farms remained crucial to the community, and yet small towns were beginning to emerge in the countryside. This study focuses on both city and country to better understand the circumstances of widows in two unique economic and social environments. Wilson contends that, despite the dictates of their gender, women had an active role to play within their families and within marriage. Her research shows that some women were involved in financial planning and management throughout their marriages and that their husbands' wills reveal an expectation of trust that their wives would exercise good judgment in maintaining the family property. While carrying on business activities outside the home challenged prevailing ideas of femininity, Wilson demonstrates that, for a widow, this concern was often secondary to the primary needs of her family.

Will anything of us survive after death? This is a central question when we ask what life means. All through history, societies and their cultures, in particular their religions and philosophies, have guided and sustained people as they have approached death and as they have mourned. A more secular society has made these comforts less accessible. Many beliefs formerly advanced with some authority and believed with some assurance have become incredible to many.After Death? offers a thought-provoking analysis of past and present beliefs for those who want to think for themselves about the greatest uncertainty of life.

recognized limit upon violence, could there be a limit upon violence beyond war? Is there a compelling and ... Or does war after death demand a response to violence that breaks altogether with the paradigm of war and its vicissitudes?
Author: Steven Miller
Publisher: Fordham Univ Press
Category: Literary Criticism
War after Death considers forms of violence that regularly occur in actual wars but do not often factor into the stories we tell about war, which revolve invariably around killing and death. Recent history demonstrates that body counts are more necessary than ever, but the fact remains that war and death is only part of the story—an essential but ultimately subordinate part. Beyond killing, there is no war without attacks upon the built environment, ecosystems, personal property, artworks, archives, and intangible traditions. Destructive as it may be, such violence is difficult to classify because it does not pose a grave threat to human lives. Nonetheless, the book argues that destruction of the nonhuman or nonliving is a constitutive dimension of all violence—especially forms of extreme violence against the living such as torture and rape; and it examines how the language and practice of war are transformed when this dimension is taken into account. Finally, War after Death offers a rethinking of psychoanalytic approaches to war and the theory of the death drive that underlies them.

Is death the end? Or, to put it another way, do we survive bodily death? Some shrug their shoulders and declare we simply can't know. Others just say no. And a few, flying their philosophical colors, pretentiously profess to not even understand the question. Curiously, the overwhelming majority of human beings throughout the course of history have taken it for granted that death is not the end, that there is a life after death. This striking and seemingly instinctive belief has been embodied in the religious traditions and philosophical reflections of most cultures. There Is Life After Death is the first of its kind in that it assembles and analyzes a comprehensive range of data on life after death and then provides the framework needed to understand the data. No previous book has presented such concrete evidenceevidence based on the accounts of eyewitnesses as well as on data derived from diverse sources through out the world and historysupporting the exi

Life After Death shows how representations of the widow in theeighteenth-century novel express attitudes toward emerging capitalismand women's participation in it. Authors responded to the century'sinstability by using widows, who had the right to act economically andself-interestedly, to teach women that virtue meant foregoing theopportunities that the changing economy offered. Novelists thus helpedto create expectations for women that linger today, and established thenovel as a cultural arbiter. The first study of widows in the developingnovel, Life After Death also takes the next step in merging genre, gender, and economic criticism

Life After Death follows a family's walk through the shadow of their loved one's tragic suicide, showing how they were able to struggle with grief and eventually return with a zest for living through the help of our living God. This novel reaches deep into the author's own experiences, when her first husband was struggling with a diagnosis of cancer. In Life After Death, Randy and Sally search for answers after Randy suffers for three months with cancer and then takes his own life. Sally feels she cannot be the super wife any longer and completely falls apart after her husband's tragic death. As Sally struggles to put her family's life back together, she finds her answer in her love of God. Now retired, author Shirley A. Olson wrote this story after her husband died. At that time she was working as a registered nurse in a hospital. She was motivated to help others deal with tragedy, since she could not find much help for survivors when she needed it. I was inspired by my husband's braveness until his body and mind deteriorated. At this time I knew that I needed help from a higher power to get through these hard times and that this experience would be helpful for others. This is what inspired me to write this story. Olson now lives in Cambridge, Minnesota, and has been a writer for 30 years. This is her third book. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/LifeAfterDeath.htm

In Africa, the emphasis on family, marriage, and offspring suggest that there is a kind of an unwritten ancestral law that imposes on every male the duty of begetting a son. The reason is because the core of African ‘soteriology’ is centered on offspring. The predicament of the childless couples, therefore, stems from the desire for immortality and salvation that culminates in the admission of the dead into the ancestral world. This quest for salvation and immortality constitute social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual problems for Christian as well as non-Christian childless couples.

Induced After Death Communication (IADC) is a therapy for grief and trauma that has helped thousands of people come to terms with their loss by allowing them the experience of private communication with their departed loved ones. This is the definitive book on the subject. Botkin, a clinical psychologist, created the therapy while counseling Vietnam veterans in his work at a Chicago area VA hospital. Botkin recounts his initial—accidental—discovery of IADC during therapy sessions with Sam, a Vietnam vet haunted by the memory of a Vietnamese girl he couldn't save. During the session, quite unexpectedly, Sam saw a vision of the girl's spirit, who told him everything was okay; she was at peace now. This single moment surpassed months—years—of therapy, and allowed Sam to reconnect with his family. Since that 1995 discovery, Botkin has used IADC to successfully treat countless patients—the book includes dozens of case examples—and has taught the procedure to therapists around the country.

She never found love in life…Is it possible she’ll find love after death? Something unexpected happens to Cindy Thomas during a mystery weekend at the Ferris Mansion. One second she’s enjoying a performance with astonishing special effects. The next, she’s dead, surrounded by a troupe of long dead actors who aren’t special effects at all. Harvey, her dream guy, is no longer a dream. He’s real—a real ghost. Suddenly, this new existence is complicated and scary and amazing, leaving her wondering if she’s made the worst mistake of her life, her death, or whatever you want to call it. Cindy will have to decide…should she step through the gateway to Heaven, or is Heaven actually here on earth, in this handsome ghost’s arms? Author’s Note: When I wrote DYING AT HONEYMOON INN, I became fond of Cindy Thomas, the young woman I killed off before readers had a chance to get to know her. For those of you familiar with my other books, you know that in VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD, I populated the Ferris Mansion with a troupe of actors who just happen to be ghosts. I enjoyed writing that book so much, I wanted to revisit the characters. What better way than to have Cindy’s spirit encounter them upon her death? Adding her to the group presented a number of problems, but I really enjoyed writing Cindy and Harvey’s love story. Who’s to say love ends with death, or even the possibility of new love? That’s part of the joy of creation. In my world, it doesn’t have to.
