The Living and the Dead examines the boundaries between the worlds of life and death.

The text draws upon philosophy, ethnography, literature and natural science to suggest that life and death are best understood not in opposition but as continuous tendencies acting upon one another. Austin Locke argues that the failure to give nuanced consideration to the connections between the living and nonliving devalues both life and death. In doing so, he suggests, our ability to respond to the challenges of environmental degradation, technological advancement and the dominance of economic logic depends in part on more fluid understandings of the relationship between life and death.
