On Death & Dying


About the Author

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss-born psychiatrist and a pioneer in near-death studies. She proposed what is now known as the Kübler-Ross model. In this work she proposed the now famous Five Stages of Grief as a pattern of adjustment.


On Death & Dying is one of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century. Considered a classic on the presentation of the five stages of grief, this work characterizes the threads that many people go through as they are processing the grief of loss. Kubler-Ross offers practical insights into progressing through each stage.
