Abstract [en]

Investigated the qualitative differences in 213 girls' and 218 boys' (aged 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, and 19 yrs) concepts of death, as reflected in their drawing. Ss were asked to draw their impression of the word "death" and to give a verbal commentary on what they had drawn. The drawings were analyzed according to a phenomenograhic method and assigned to 1 of 3 superordinate and 10 subordinate qualitative categories. The categories were both age and gender related. Biological death concepts dominated the younger age groups (aged 9-12 yrs), and metaphysical death concepts were found predominately in the older age groups. Boys had more violent death concepts than did girls and personified death more often. Girls depicted death in more emotional terms than boys did.
