(p.209) Chapter 13 Recognizing life's ‘surplus of meaning’
Recognizing Spiritual Needs in People who are Dying

Rachel Stanworth

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how patients can recognize life's ‘surplus of meaning’. It discusses facet nine, which is more concerned with the ‘unsaid’ and the ‘unsayable’ of this study than the spoken. Facet nine also acknowledges the right of patients to maintain silence and admits the possibility of interpretative oversights. Two challenges of facet nine are also discussed.

Keywords:   meaning, facet nine, silence, interpretative oversights, challenges, unsaid, unsayable
