Product description

Review

An original, creative contribution to a synthesis of this generation's extensive explorations in psychology and theology. (Boston Herald)

One of those rare masterpieces that will stimulate your thoughts, your intellectual curiosity, and last but not least, your soul. (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, author, On Death and Dying)

A brave work of electrifying intelligence and passion, optimistic and revolutionary, destined to endure. (New York Times Book Review)

Concerns the 'universality of the fear of death'... Its approach is more philosophical than psychologically or medically empirical. (Theology)

Meditating on death and its influence on our culture... that the fear of death is the single motivating fact of human endeavour and that all art and philosophy come from trying to deal with obsolescence. (The Catholic Herald)

One of the few great books of the 20th or any other century. (Albuquerque Journal Book Review)

It is hard to overestimate the importance of this book: Becker succeeds brilliantly in what he sets out to do, and the effort was necessary. (The Chicago Sun-Times)

Book Description

Ernest Becker tackles our relationship to mortality and searches for alternative ways to live.
