If secularism privileges the temporal over the eternal, what are the ramifications for how death is thought by those who live within a secular frame? We will explore the question as it is posed and answered, however provisionally, within modern Western philosophy, literature, and the visual arts. Material will include work by Henry James, William James, Sigmund Freud, Martin Heidegger, Herbert Marcuse, Carole Maso, Janet Kauffman, and Susan Howe.
