Description The phenomenon of modernity changed the course previously followed by death. In previous centuries, one used to die in the familiarity of one's own home and death had become a spectacle attended by the community of the living. After the twentieth century death became cold, distant and impersonal. The search for the sense of being, however, remained basically unchanged; since Dasein is a “being-toward-death”, it is inherent to the human being the elaboration of ontological questions, which can rise angst and denial. The present article intends to understand, in a general way, the relation between the heideggerian’s Dasein and the phenomenon of death, starting from the idea that such association is a metaphysical reality.
O fenômeno da modernidade alterou o curso previamente seguido pela morte. Em séculos anteriores morria-se na familiaridade do próprio lar e o morrer adquiria caráter de espetáculo, que era acompanhado pela  comunidade dos vivos. Após o século XX a morte tornou-se fria, distante e impessoal. A busca pelo sentido do ser, no entanto, permaneceu basicamente imutável; uma vez que o Dasein é um “ser/estar-para-a morte”, faz-se inerente ao homem a elaboração de questionamentos ontológicos, que podem originar angústia e negação. No presente artigo busca-se compreender, de modo geral, a relação entre o Dasein heideggeriano e o fenômeno da morte, partindo-se da ideia de que tal associação se trata de  uma realidade metafísica.
