He adapts quotes from this article (remember this was a 1970 book)

all of us in the age of enlightenment need to recognise death’s growing remoteness and unfamiliarity, the masks by which it is suppressed, the fantastic rituals by which we keep the presence of death at bay and our own presence from the dying, the inferiority assigned to the dying because it would be a human accomplishment not to do so, the ubiquity of the fear of dying that is one sure product of a secular age
