Things Fall Apart: Reflections on the Dying of My Dad

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
In December of 2013, my Dad died of advanced Alzheimer's and a condition called Myasthenia Gravis. This is a selection of journal entries I made over the course of the two years leading up to my Dad's death. It is not a philosophical essay, but a personal reflection, in "real time" so to speak, on the nature of the dying process in relation to questions of faith, hope, despair, and the meaning of a man's life. I offer it here for any who might find it worthwhile.
