In die Sonne schauen: Wie man die Angst vor dem Tod by Irvin D. Yalom

By Irvin D. Yalom

Gibt es ein Leben vor dem Tod? Über die Dinge im Leben, die wirklich wichtig sind ...

Die größte Herausforderung für den Menschen ist es, seiner eigenen Sterblichkeit ins Auge zu blicken. Die Angst vor dem Tod unterscheidet den Menschen vom Tier: Jede faith, jede Kulturleistung ist ein Versuch, sich das Undenkbare begreiflich zu machen. Der amerikanische Psychoanalytiker und Bestsellerautor Irvin D. Yalom nähert sich in diesem Buch einer der größten Fragen der Menschheit sowohl auf der professionellen wie auch auf einer zutiefst persönlichen Ebene. „Auch ich fürchte den Tod wie jeder Mensch“, schreibt Yalom, „er ist unser düsterer Schatten, der sich nicht abschütteln lässt.“ In seiner praktischen Arbeit hat er andererseits erfahren, wie sehr das Wissen um den nahen Tod bei vielen seiner Patienten zu einer vollkommenen Neuorientierung, ja Bereicherung führte. Wie sie auf einmal in der Lage waren, Entscheidungen zu treffen, die ihnen wirklich am Herzen lagen. „In die Sonne schauen“ ist deshalb nicht nur eine Auseinandersetzung mit der Endlichkeit des Lebens, sondern auch ein Plädoyer für ein bewusstes Leben. „Es ist kein düsteres Buch“, so Yalom, „meine Hoffnung ist vielmehr, dass wir begreifen, wie kostbar jeder second ist und wie tröstlich unser Miteinander, wenn wir unserer Endlichkeit, unserer kurzen Zeit im Licht, wirklich ins Auge sehen.“
