The Denial of Death Dr. Ernest Becker

Summary : The Denial of Death

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life’s work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker’s brilliant and impassioned answer to the “why” of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie: man’s refusal to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates half a century after its publication.

The Denial of Death was the last book Dr. Becker published before his own premature death in 1974. His insightful and powerful ideas are sure to last for generations.
