Sample text

Seen from this point of view, death and dying mean the set of practices enforced when somebody is dying at the ward. These practices include items like heavy nursing care, cleaning and dressing the body after the death, announcements to the family of the deceased, writing the death certificate, contacting the pathologist and so on. All different professional groups have their own tasks. The principle of organization governing the events in this frame is everyday-like means-end rationality. Everybody does her or his job following the well-earned habits trying to reach the given goal with a relatively low strain.

The fact that different frames of death are so separated from each other seems to perpetuate active policies of treatment in spite of all criticism. A hypothesis can be generalised from this: separatedness of different frames makes power immune to many potential attacks. When the attacks and their target exist in different frames, then the power attacked will not be attained by its critics. Another problem that the staff, especially the nurses, very often face is the emotional involvement in the situation of the dying and their families.

A dying person's body is still, of course, a living one, but passing from the world of the living to that of the dead it is becoming a corpse. Can't this dying person pull me along, take me along with him on his inexorable journey towards death, to the land of the dead? This is the ancestral fear of being pulled along by the dying person, and these fears are abundantly illustrated by folklore, as the psychoanalyst, Michel de M'Uzan, (1977) explains. This fear is inside us, in our body. It is like the fear of being contaminated: Won't this living body, which is already carrying death in it, pass it on to me?
