Reflections on death and suicide

To deal with the enigmatic question of why a human being raises his hand against himself is not an easy task at all. To approach this indecipherable knot of suicidal death we will make a detour through the mystery of death, stopping by some philosophical, literary and psychoanalytic works. Undertaking this path forces us to set aside the prejudices and moral condemnations that still weigh on reason if we wish to free suicide from the prison in which it has been confined with the chains of the pathology.
