Gender as a determinant of fear of death

Anna Gulczyńska , Karolina Churska-Nowak , Barbara Jankowiak


    The aim of this paper is to explore the relationship between gender and fear of death. The analysis of this issue poses the question of whether gender determines the way in which death is perceived or whether, according to popular widespread opinion, women are more fearful of death than men.

The article consists of three main parts - the theoretical section, the methodology, and finally the presentation of the research results. The first part deals with the issues relating to the circumstances of human death - covering both individual and social per­spectives. It is a synthesis of the contemporary concepts of death and an outline of the subject area, necessary for the research to be carried out. The process of shaping iden­tity, with a particular emphasis on gender identity, is also described in this part. The sec­ond part is a description of the methodology of the author's own research, while the third part consists of a summary of the results obtained. The research carried out may contribute to a deeper understanding of the issue, namely the extent to which the degree of fear of death is determined by biological and social factors.
