Human Rebirth Beliefs
This chapter discusses reincarnation, but focuses on its implications for relations within the human life world, and demonstrates how reincarnation is important as a model for dealing with grief. Reincarnation also emphasizes the continuity rather than the finality of personal relationships. The chapter furthermore shows how a person's relation to the soul of his previous incarnation is problematic, and studies the notion of the fragmented body in relation to Lacan's theory of the “mirror stage.”
