About this title


ing on philosophy, psychology, and systems theory, this work presents a fresh, new approach to understanding suicide. Presents fourteen common characteristics of suicide, each of which is carefully described in both theoretical and clinical terms. Includes a section on the prevention of suicide and a detailed case study, illustrating the cognitive aspects of suicide using the text of Melville's great psychological novel, Moby Dick

About the Author:

In a career that spanned more than four decades, Dr. Edwin S. Shneidman was the chief of the first national suicide prevention program, at the National Institute of Mental Health; founded the American Association of Suicidology; and was the first professor of thanatology (the study of death) at the University of California, Los Angeles. Until Dr. Shneidman took up the study of suicide shortly after World War II, the subject had received little sustained attention from researchers or clinicians. But as a researcher, theoretician, lecturer and author and editor of a dozen books, he helped establish the study of suicide as an interdisciplinary field and devised many concepts now widely accepted.
