Herman Feifel, was an American psychologist who is considered the pioneer of the modern death movement. Feifel broke the taboo on discussions of death and dying with the publication of his book The Meaning of Death[1] . In this book, Feifel[2] dispelled myths held by scientists and practitioners about death and the denial of its importance for human behaviour.


In 1988 he received the American Psychological Association's Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Applied Research
