On aging revolt and resignation by Jean Améry ( )
86 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On Aging, the first of Jean Amery's books after At the Mind's Limits, is a powerful and profound work on the process of aging and the limited but real defenses available to those experiencing the process. Each essay covers a set of issues about growing old. "Existence and the Passage of Time" focuses on the way aging makes the old progressively see time as the essence of their existence. "Stranger to Oneself" is a meditation on the ways the aging are alienated from themselves. "The Look of Others" treats social aging - the realization that it is no longer possible to live according to one's potential or possibilities. "Not to Understand the World Anymore" deals with the loss of the ability to understand new developments in the arts and in the changing values of society

Jean Amery (1921-1978) was born in Vienna and in 1938 emigrated to Belgium, where he joined the Resistance.

In five autobiographical essays, Amery describes his survival--mental, moral, and physical--through the enormity and horror of the Holocaust
On suicide : a discourse on voluntary death by Jean Améry ( Book )
76 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On Suicide is neither a defense of suicide nor an invitation to assisted suicide, but an analysis of the state of mind of those who are suicidal and who actually do commit suicide. It is also a strident defense of the freedom of the individual and a plea for the recognition of the fact that we belong to ourselves before belonging to another person, or an institution, nation, or religion, and that our right to choose to end our life can have priority over social entanglements and biological destiny."--Jacket
