Sich mit dem Tod und insbesondere mit dem Suizid auf eine erklärende, objektive und gar
wissenschaftliche paintings und Weise auseinanderzusetzen erschien mir vorerst ungewohnt. Der Tod
wird in unserem Kulturkreis wahrscheinlich primär traurig, schmerzvoll und leidend
wahrgenommen, vielleicht auch gerade deswegen weil guy sich in seinem Leben eventuell nicht
bewusst mit der Thematik auseinandersetzt. Konfrontiert mit dem Tod wird guy vermutlich am
ehesten wenn ein Mensch aus dem eigenen Umfeld stirbt, obwohl uns täglich Nachrichten von
tödlichen Unfällen, Massakern oder Ähnlichem erreichen - vielleicht macht guy sich zu diesen
Zeitpunkten Gedanken über die eigene Sterblichkeit oder guy schiebt es weg - weil es ja „Andere“
betrifft. Je älter guy wird, umso wahrscheinlicher wird es zu sterben und vermutlich gewinnt der
Gedanke über sein eigenes Ableben mehr an Präsenz, oder guy „entschließt“ sich vielleicht sogar
es selbst zu bestimmen - sich zu suizidieren. Wobei die Frage, ob guy sich objektiv für eine
Suizidierung entscheiden kann, unter anderem im Fokus dieser Arbeit stehen wird.
Nun stellt sich die Frage warum Menschen im Allgemeinen und speziell im modify sich dazu
entschließen sich zu suizidieren und ob guy in diesem Kontext von der eigenen, selbstbestimmten
und ungezwungenen Meinung sprechen kann.

Das vorliegende Buch bietet die erste systematische Untersuchung zum Thema Alterssuizid in der griechisch-römischen Antike. Der Autor zeigt, daß bereits im Altertum das hohe regulate, der nahende Tod, Altersleiden und der erwogene oder vollzogene Freitod ein kohärentes, dem zeitgenössischen Denken und Erleben vertrautes Motivgeflecht bildeten. Trotz einer dürftigen Quellenlage läßt sich plausibel annehmen, daß der wegen Krankheiten, Einsamkeit und Lebensüberdruß ins Auge gefaßte oder begangene Suizid im höheren Lebensalter weit größere Bedeutung besaß, als angesichts der spärlichen Informationen zu vermuten wäre. Nachweislich existierten bereits umfängliche und detaillierte geriatrische Kenntnisse, darunter auch empirisch fundiertes Wissen um den Alterssuizid. Und schließlich haben sich auch bereits die antiken Ärzte mit dem challenge erwünschter – passiver oder aktiver – Sterbehilfe auseinandersetzen müssen.
