"The Limits of Death" brings together specific moments in contemporary cultural theory, continental thought, literature, art, photography, film, and music to engage a discussion about the nature of death. This book addresses the thought of influential figures in modern philosophy, focusing on the possibility of knowing and experiencing death. It explores the ways that consideration of the material body, the human, and the post-human impacts upon attempts to conceptualize death. It also offers a series of narratives that endeavor to speak with the dead, through emotive encounters with the very borders of death itself.
