    By "to be or not to be" Hamlet is actually considering suicide - to be (live) or not to be (die). Ultimately, he decides against suicide due to the fear of retribution in afterlife.

    Hamlet is contemplating suicide, he is asking whether to exist or not.

    Hamlet is also questionin human existence much as some of us do today. The Early modern period is characterised by this line of questioning, man's place in the uniiverse was being challenged by science, God came under fire, Descartes started this, William Shakespeare picked up a popular theme and hey presto :)
