Read full description of the books:
Despues de estudiar la historia de la vida privada y la institución familiar a lo largo de distintas épocas, Philippe Ariès, uno de los mas grandes historiadores del siglo veinte, consagró sus investigaciones a las actitudes del hombre occidental frente a la muerte. El libro da cuenta de las distintas y cambiantes concepciones de la muerte en este hemisferio, a través del tiempo; sitúa los cambios en un contexto y señala cómo cada concepción fue configurando sucesivas formas de convivencia social. Morir en Occidente reúne la parte esencial de los hallazgos de Ariès: cómo se ha pasado lenta, progresivamente, de la muerte familiar y “domesticada”de la Edad Media, a la muerte inhibida, maldita, interdicta de nuestros días. Huir de la muerte es la tentación de Occidente. “Ariès logra plasmar, en páginas memorables, ese lento y nítido proceso en el que se va perdiendo la familiaridad con la muerte.” La Nación “Es un texto clave como puerta de entrada al mundo de los muertos y de los vivos, escrito por un maestro de la historia de las mentalidades.” El País, de Montevideo

Read information about the authorPhilippe Ariès (21 July 1914 – 8 February 1984) was a French medievalist and historian of the family and childhood, in the style of Georges Duby. He wrote many books on the common daily life. His most prominent works regarded the change in the western attitudes towards death.
Ariès regarded himself as an "anarchist of the right". He was initially close to the Action française but later distanced himself from it, as he viewed it as too authoritarian, hence his self-description as an "anarchist". Ariès also contributed to La Nation française, a royalist review. However, he also co-operated with many left-wing French historians, especially with Michel Foucault, who wrote his obituary.
During his life, his work was often better known in the English-speaking world than it was in France itself. He is known above all for his book L’Enfant et la Vie Familiale sous l’Ancien Régime (1960), which was translated into English as Centuries of Childhood (1962). This book is pre-eminent in the history of childhood, as it was essentially the first book on the subject (although some antiquarian texts were earlier). Even today, Ariès remains the standard reference to the topic. Ariès is most famous for his statement that "in medieval society, the idea of childhood did not exist". Its central thesis is that attitudes towards children were progressive and evolved over time with economic change and social advancement, until childhood, as a concept and an accepted part of family life, from the 17th century. It was thought that children were too weak to be counted and that they could disappear at any time. However, children were considered as adults as soon as they could live alone.
The book has had mixed fortunes. His contribution was profoundly significant both in that it recognised childhood as a social construction rather than as a biological given and in that it founded the history of childhood as a serious field of study. At the same time, his account of childhood has by now been widely criticised.
Ariès is likewise remembered for his invention of another field of study: the history of attitudes to death and dying. Ariès saw death, like childhood, as a social construction. His seminal work in this ambit is L'Homme devant la mort (1977), his last major book, published in the same year when his status as a historian was finally recognised by his induction into the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS), as a directeur d'études.
