Abstract.

In this article Rozin discusses the attitude to death in contemporary culture. The author analyzes the reasons and circumstances that revive interest towards death and whether one should fear it. Rozin analyzes three concepts of life after death: pagan (animistic), Christian and esoteric. These concepts are based on the idea of human soul that is eternal. Howeover, the shift to the Modern Period and development of rational research thinking made us forget about that idea. As a consequence, people started to fear death again. The author of this article offers a solution of this problem through critisizing myths about life and death of a modern human and development of the 'right life' concept. In his research Rozin applies the following research methods: problem statement, comparative analysis, cultural historical reconstruction of ideas about life after death, and scenario approach. As a result of his research, Rozin describes the situation of the contemporary culture that returns researchers to discussing life after death and trying to find a solution of this problem. According to the author, the solution of the problem is the criticism of memos about life and death of a modern human and adoption of the 'right life' concept.
