A literature review on the perception of death around the world was completed to determine the rituals we participate in surrounding death. Beliefs about death, funerals, and the afterlife can provide insight into a culture. The analysis of the similarities and differences between countries in the ways in which death is dealt with is an important discussion that needs to occur. While the research is vast for each specific culture, an analysis of multiple countries does not exist. This limitation in the research needs to be addressed as a comprehensive view of the perception of death is lacking. A full analysis could provide insight into the ways in which we are connected with others and the other areas which separate us from other cultures and nations.
