The ethics of death




Belief in the afterlife to a certain faith frees people from fear of death, replacing his otherworldly fear of retribution, which is one of the motivating factors for the moral evaluation of actions, distinguishing good from evil. This, however, is given by the foundation and to reduce the value of otherworldly life, understood as the only pre-condition is not achieved in conditions of earthly existence and completeness of the truth. However, it was the notion of death, awareness of the finiteness and uniqueness of human personal life contributes to the clarification of moral meaning and value of human life. The sense of uniqueness of each of its moments, neunichtozhimosti, and in some cases and irreparably committed misconduct able to clarify the measure of a person for their business.

This specific nature of the idea of death and determines that any attempt to build ethical teachings besides this category every time split on the fact of a human fatality in the death of the irrational mind of any effort to run every time that person opens the inexorable moral not meaningful and not overcome spiritual death. In this case, the denial of the moral essence of death is a form of denial of the moral essence of life and can only serve as a basis for the complete irresponsibility of conduct emanating from the principle of "after us even if the flood." Strictly speaking, the ethics of death has been linked to idefiks religious concept, the dominant society (the State ekumene, people) at this time. If the State waives the protection of religion and even its stigma, many elements of the moral-religious understanding of death changed in the mundane everyday life - in the form of funeral rites, customs generally accepted, etc. The notion of good and evil in relation to death if this continues long enough ( except in cases of massive repression, genocide and mass displacement of peoples - when suddenly and in large scale collapse long way).
