Death itself is considered to be problematic. There are legal, biological, psychological, and even sociological problems that can be connected to death. This chapter gives a detailed account of the question: “What is the nature of death?” that includes a conceptual analysis of the topic. Another analysis is made on the very concept of death, and the biological concept of death is also discussed.
