The Human Encounter With Death

NY: E.P. Dutton, 1977. First edition. 8vo; blue boards backed with gray cloth; black spine titles; dust jacket. xiii, 240pp., with index. Board edges lightly sunned; mild bump to bottom front corner. About near fine in a like jacket, price-clipped, with a short closed tear at base of front panel, diagonal crease to front flap. Jacket cut slightly short.

An uncommon work blending insights from a clinical program on psychedelic end-of-life therapy with broader anthropo-cultural perspectives on death and its role in life. Grof (b. 1931) is a Czech-born psychiatrist notable for his groundbreaking early studies utilizing LSD. Halifax (b. 1942) is an American anthropologist and Zen Buddhist teacher. With an introduction by Swiss American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (1926-2004), author of On Death and Dying (1969). An important work in the drug canon—even more so the literature of thanatology.
