Eine Soziologische Studie
Author: Thnnes, Michaela
Publisher: Peter Lang Gmbh, Internationaler Verlag Der Wissenschaften
Sterben ist ein sozialer Prozess, der in Abhangigkeit vom Sterbeort sehr unterschiedlich verlauft. Das Buch will anhand einer umfassenden Darstellung des soziologischen Forschungsstands die Wissenslucken um die Sterbeorte aufdecken und schliessen. Um zu verstehen, wie unterschiedlich Sterben an verschiedenen Orten determiniert ist, wurden qualitative Interviews mit Angehorigen durchgefuhrt, die Sterbende begleitet hatten. Welche Vorstellungen, welches Wissen und welche Einstellungen gegenuber den verschiedenen Sterbeorten liegen in der Gesellschaft vor? Die Ergebnisse der Studie verdeutlichen die Komplexitat der sozialen Ablaufe im Sterbeprozess, welche sich aus Kommunikation, Emotionalitat, Wunschen und Zielen ergeben."
