Filosofen Stephen Cave begynder med et mørkt men fængslende spørgsmål: Hvornår indså du først, at du ville dø? Og endnu mere interessant: Hvorfor modsætter vi mennesker os, dødens uundgåelighed? I et fascinerende foredrag udforsker Cave fire fortællinger — fælles på tværs af civilisationer — som vi fortæller os selv "for at hjælpe os med at håndtere frygten for at dø."
