I’ve got a very uplifting video for you guys today: perspectives on death. Yes, a whole video about death. While that may not seem like a video you would necessarily want to watch, it’s actually much more interesting and not as depressing as you might think. In fact, after watching the video above, made by Crash Course in their Philosophy series, you may not think talking about death is depressing at all, depending on which philosopher you find most convincing.
From Socrates to Epicurus, the video above discusses whether or not you should fear death from the perspectives of many influential philosophers. Interestingly, most highlighted in the video say that death isn’t necessarily something you should fear, as most people do today. Along with being entertaining and informative, the video will help you make your own decision on how you view death.
