Life Transition to Terminality: Dynamic Regimes of Representation, Permanent Liminality, and Coping Consumption

Unpacking life and market transition of patients to terminality accounts for how they use representational agency and consumption to counterbalance etic representational regimes, and the tensions arising from their liminal experience.
