Life and the meaning of death

I only just got around to watching this interview, by science writer John Horgan, with Sheldon Solomon, one of the architects of ‘terror-management theory’ – an attempt to explain how we cope with the existential terror created by the knowledge we’ll one day shuffle of this mortal coil. It’s excellent, and Solomon is the kind of guy I think I could spend an enjoyable evening talking with.

I wrote about some of the ideas covered in this interview a while back (turns out it’s 7 years – 7 YEARS?! That can’t be right…):
