The arts, the humanities and our Demetrios project dominate the fourth issue of JOSHA of this year. Ten contributions came together for a very artistic issue. In the present issue, we find further announcements of our important Demetrios project, this time in Albanian, Tamil and Rumanian. We currently reach 15 different languages for the project, and more are yet to come. This issue of JOSHA presents a new feature for our users, the “print on demand” option. With this option, you can get printed version of the PDFs published on JOSHA with a customised cover-page or a whole set of your favourite articles from the diverse topics available in JOSHA.

We were happy to take part in such an important event and receive feedback and support from colleagues and readers from all around the world.

International Academy of Science, Humanities and Arts, IASHA e.V. Freiburg, Deutschland The JOSHA Demetrios Project With the July 2017 issue, JOSHA is starting the Demetrios Project. We chose Demetrios of Phaleron, a student of Theophrastus and most probably of Aristotle, as the name patron of our project. Demetrios was instrumental in establishing the ancient Library of Alexandria, probably the largest and most significant library of the ancient world covering all aspects of Science, Humanities and the Arts in many different languages. It is our objective to open up JOSHA as a universally accessible, open access library to all languages and countries. JOSHA will focus initially on publishing and provide open-access to textbooks in any field of Science, Humanities and the Arts, to students and readers worldwide. JOSHA will publish textbooks in any language after appropriate peer review by experts in the field knowledgeable of the respective language.

This short paper reflects on the attitudes that modern society has towards death, which affect and form the language that we use to describe death. The key domains of concern to the dying are described, as well as the patterns of social interactions. It explores how the visual arts can offer an alternate and cathartic form of communication of death, as shown by the patient experience with cancer. Ultimately, it encourages us to view medicine as an art, and also art as medicine.
