RLST 330 - Death, Dying, and the Near-Death Experience

Further topics include: the stages of dying and bereavement; legal issues in death and dying; how the major world religions treat death and dying, and the significance and possible meaning of recent scientific inquiry into the near-death experience. As needed.
