Chisholm Health Ethics Bulletin 22 (3):2 (2017)
AbstractParkinson, Joseph Near death experiences and the wisdom they produce are the stuff of countless novels, but when the story ends in the author's death, where is wisdom to be found? American neurosurgeon Paul Kalanithi has left an astonishingly eloquent and lucid account of his own dying and his inner journey to find meaning and even peace in that experience. As inspiring as it is tragic, "When Breath Becomes Air" rightly sits on The New York Times list of best sellers, and is a must-read for anyone working in bioethics or health care.
