    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 more than 30 years after its writing.

    Michael says: "Symbology is central to all human behavior"
    "Most excellent."

    What made the experience of listening to The Denial of Death the most enjoyable?

    Becker had it right. Freud was right on target except for one small thing, the sex thing. It is DEATH that is the root of all neurosis.
