Example text

But we will miss the problem, if we direct our attention only to the corpse which remains behind, or to the permanent grave to which the piety is transferred. What is decisive is rather the privation, which the survivor has experienced through the death of an intimately familiar human being. At this point 62 THE DEATH OF ANOTHER THE DEATH OF ANOTHER questions must arise for us which will take us further. What does this privation mean in the life of a survivor? At the decisive point where Heidegger delineates his own train of thought, focused sharply on existence as a "being toward death," he also points out that the privation experienced at the death of another human being is something fundamentally different from the "privation of being" which the human being suffers in his own death.

While memory for recent events weakens so substantially, that the older person often cannot remember what he has done on the previous day, many long forgotten recollections from childhood suddenly emerge. We know today that these changes are connected with corporeal processes, but such a causal viewpoint is not the essential one for achieving understanding. It is much more important to ask about the relationships of meaning, which are made possible through these processes: the new proximity to childhood, which we already encountered in the romantic image of the elderly.

Rather, we ask about this in a general anthropological sense: What does it mean for the understanding of human life in general, that such privation and loss occurs in it? 3.
