The American culture of death changed radically in the 1970s as patients asserted their ""right to die,"" either by refusing medical treatment or more recently by physician-assisted suicide. These new practices rested on the propositions that death can be a positive good for individuals whose suffering has become intolerable, and that death is an inevitable and therefore morally neutral biological event. But in Death Is That Man Taking Names Robert A. Burt suggests that our culture still considers death inherently evil, not just in practical but also in moral terms.
