This chapter discusses the relationships between culture and death, and their difference. Culture means the cultivation of life and differentiates through the distinctive ways they relate to death. At the same time "death" is not something that can be simply "related to" as though it were fixed, stable, and localizable, that is, a straightforward goal or target. Death is the inevitably equivocal limit of "life".

Keywords: death; culture; target; cultivation of life; distinctive ways
