The EPIS Institute has been studying the existential elements of the human condition for several years. Now, various clinicians and theorists have decided to start a new initiative to closely study the relationships amongst death – life – meaning – and current social outcomes along various dimensions. This Initiative will involve research, theory, clinical practice, cultural practice, history, our human anthropology, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and critical theory. The goal is to pursue a deeper understanding of our attitudes toward death, and how they inform our lifeworld – the lebenswelt. If you are interested in this project, please feel to contact the institute.
