This chapter examines the work of Philippe Ariès and his ‘parental indifference hypothesis’, and also considers the wider historiography of death and dying created by a group of mainly French historians associated with the Annales school. It discusses the way in which Ariès went about his work, what influenced his thinking, and why others have adopted his ideas about childhood and death. The chapter concludes with a review of Michel Vovelle's ‘three-levels model’ and the way he tackled the problem of measuring changes in attitudes and beliefs.

Keywords:   Philippe Ariès, parental indifference hypothesis, death, dying, Annales, Michel Vovelle
