Making Sense of Suicide
The narratives produced in this volume, not only demonstrated that we, as human beings, are narrative animals in our need to make sense of ourselves and our situations; they also demonstrated that we are, in normal life as well as in our narrated selves, embodied, bodily and ecologically, and embedded into interpersonal, and herewith socio-cultural, situations. In striving for a profound understanding of suicide and suicide attempts, as a comprehensive and/or meaningful behaviour, it beccomes clear: although we may never know, exactly, why a person kills herself or which cultural concept of suicide is the ultimate one, we will always suspect that we can at least make some sense of it. Within the pages of this eBook, the reader will find perspectives from many disciplines, each with a common goal - Making Sense of Suicide.
