Our capacity to reflect on the finite nature of human existence conditions how we perceive ourselves and our values, and such reflection motivates our actions to a much greater degree than is commonly acknowledged. We are normally inclined to suppress thoughts and anxieties about death, as these are overwhelmingly associated with negative feelings; yet, an awareness and acceptance of the inevitability of death nurtures positive values and actions and leads to a better quality of life. 


Oslo Death Network has participants from across a range of fields, including medicine, psychology, philosophy, musicology and the arts.
