Death in psychology

Along with the precise observations of discussions Kyubler E. Ross is very much disputed. Can, for example, refer to your own experience to refute the idea of an American psychiatrist. When my grandmother died (she was brought up me, replacing the mother), I did not have the slightest feeling of hatred towards her. The sense of guilt was not at fault for the death of the grandmother (she died of cancer), but for the fact that in her life, I nedodal her my love. Here on this, I suffered and suffer still. Concerning the ritual and abundant tears for the dead - also is debatable. For tears, as it is now known to contain the anesthetic substance, which are similar to those of morphine. So the sobbing relatives, rather, it is not an attempt to bring to his pity and compassion to protect themselves from this stigma the gods or society, and the physiological response of the organism, mitigating distress. (Fine with that Odinkovo body reacts to physical and mental pain - tears.) According to the well-known psychoanalyst E. Fromm, get rid of the fear of death - all that well to get rid of your own mind. In the book "The man for himself", he writes: "Consciousness, reason and imagination violated" harmony "of animal existence. Their emergence has made man into an anomaly, freak universe. The man - part of nature, it is dependent on physical laws and are not able to change them, and all he goes beyond nature... thrown into this world in a certain place and time, it is the same randomly driven from it. Realizing himself, he understands his own powerlessness and the limitations of existence. He foresaw the end - death. He was never freed from the dichotomy of his existence: he would help get rid of the mind, even if it wanted to, he can not get rid of the body while alive, and it makes the body desire life. " And be afraid of death, we will add. However, some researchers believe that the fear of death is not innate, but acquired the property during the life of the psyche. L. Watson, for example, looking at the literature on psychological reactions of people to death, was struck by the fact that "the fear of death occurs only in adults, and only those who have time for reflection on this theme."
