Sample text

On death and dying 7 In institutional terms a good death is one which minimizes both suffering and the pain of the patient. And it is these same institutional values, which support life and which are dedicated to extending life so efficiently and effectively, that inform the systems of care, with equal efficiency, to discharge the remains once life has ended. From the point of view of the health services, after a person has died their responsibilities have finished; it is in Durkheim’s6 terms a simple matter of division of labour, part of the modern social agenda.

1: Attachment. Harmondsworth: Penguin. Durkheim saw the division of labour in society as fragmenting human experience, as parcelling it into meaningless events. ‘The division of labour in society’ (1893) was his doctoral thesis, and became a controversial book: Durkheim, E. (1997) The Division of Labour in Society. New York, London: Free Press, Macmillan. Weber, op. cit. ‘Betwixt and between’: crossing thresholds Caryl Sibbett Introduction This chapter will explore from an anthropological perspective the relevance of the liminal, transitional or threshold phase of rites of passage to art therapy and cancer experiences.

The effect of these rituals is to strengthen attachments between surviving members of families and friends and the deceased person, and to provide a communication channel through which they can express their feelings, both positive and negative. The rituals that surround death have the effect, among other things, of bridging the space between the personal and the public, and as such ‘normalize’ the changing status of the dying and those who mourn. In modern societies these rituals have almost disappeared.
