John Ruganda is one of the renowned playwrights in East and Central Africa. This is a generic analysis that focuses on the creation, development, treatment, interpretation, significance and use of the theme of death as a running motif in his drama. Ruganda interrogates the ambivalence of life and death. Sometimes, the fear of death explains the meaning and need for the preservation of life. The relationship between content and form within the literary theory of Structuralism informs the conceptual framework of this study. This research also explores the various concepts of death from the Christian and African traditional perspectives and examines the causes and use of various manifestations of death as a leitmotif in his drama. Ruganda utilizes unique dramatic techniques: a minimal cast and storytelling, African folklore and mythology, role playing and fantasy projection within a one confined symbolic setting and use of language and symbolism in the realms of metaphysical theatre of the absurd. John Ruganda is able to provide a reflection of the reality of a life of a people bedeviled by death in a society he deals with in his drama. Scholars would find this study invaluable.
This book investigates and compares the concepts of life and death in the Old Testament and Yoruba worldview with particular focus on the book of Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes). Comparative and contrasting variables are identified in determining the meaning and value of life that is concurrently faithful to the biblical message and relevant to the Yoruba context. Relevant portions of Qoheleth are selected for semantic, historical and exegetical cum expository analyses. Words employed by Qoheleth in describing life and death are studied. Also, Yoruba terms used in relation to the idea of life and death, their meaning, purpose and worth, are also examined. The study is approached from the perspective of phenomenology of religion and is multidimensional. This method is suitable for this work that is comparative, systematic and descriptive. The book makes suggestions for both specialized and freelance theologians in their efforts to appropriately relate biblical appreciation of life to the diverse aspects of their practical ministries. This engenders a comprehensively biblical perception of life by the Yoruba student of the Bible.

What is it to be alive and to die? What is it to be a person? What must time be like if we are to persist? What makes one life better than another? May death or posthumous events harm the dead? The chapters in this volume address these questions, and also discuss topical issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and suicide. They explore the interrelation between the metaphysics, significance, and ethics of life and death, and they discuss the moral significance of killing both people and animals, and the extent to which death harms them. The volume is for all those studying the philosophy of life and death, for readers taking applied ethics courses, and for those studying ethics and metaphysics more generally.
