☯ Full Synopsis : "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 twenty years after its writing."Article| Ernest Becker| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Ernest Becker (1924-1974) was an astute observer of society and human behavior during America�s turbulent 1960s and 1970s. Trained in social anthropology and driven by a transcending curiosity about human motivations, Becker doggedly pursued his basic research question, "What makes people act the way they do?" Dissatisfied with what he saw as narrowly fragmented methods in the contemporary social sciences and impelled by a belief that humankind more than ever needed a disciplined, rational, and empirically based understanding of itself, Becker slowly created a powerful interdisciplinary vision of the human sciences, one in which each discipline is rooted in a basic truth concerning the human condition. That truth became an integral part of Becker's emerging social science. Almost inadvertently, he outlined a perspective on human motivations that is perhaps the most broadly interdisciplinary to date. His perspective traverses not only the biological, psychological, and social sciences but also the humanities and educational, political, and religious studies. Ernest Becker is best known for the books written in the last few years before his death from cancer, including the highly praised Pulitzer Prize-winning volume The Denial of Death (1974) and Escape from Evil (1975). These late works, however, were built on a distinguished body of earlier books, essays, and reviews. The power and strength of Becker�s ideas are fully present in his early works, which underlie his later contributions and give direction for interpreting the development of his ideas. Although Ernest Becker's life and career were cut short, his major writings have remained continually in print and have captured the interest of subsequent generations of readers. The Ernest Becker Reader makes available for the first time in one volume much of Becker�s early work and thus places his later work in proper context. It is a major contribution to the ongoing interest in Becker's ideas."Article| Daniel Liechty| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Transference and Transcendence presents in systematic form Becker's understanding of human existence as a balance of competing paradoxical psychodynamic forces. According to Becker, connections exist between such therapeutic concepts as low self-esteem, alienation, denial, and the theological category of sin. Based on an expanded view of transference dynamics in which human beings seek to draw power for living from external objects, Becker's work posits that people have this kind of relationship to God as well. His ideas concur with the Psalmist's: the human heart longs for completion in a true and living God. Becker's social scientific point of view does not attempt to prove this God's actual existence. Rather, it demonstrates that the "God" of everyday life is a projection of the power of social institutions. The attachment to "Gods" as the only adequate transference object for mature spirituality and personal growth is socially functional. Tempering though Becker's work is, this study suggests that we may find certain "intimations of transcendence" in counseling. Whereas there is in the human heart that panic disguised as reason whose ultimate manifestation is in a "denial of death," Becker's work, as well as that of Yalom, Lifton, and Kubler-Ross, suggests that it might be possible to incorporate death awareness as an ally in living. Pastoral and psychological counseling pursued from a Beckerian perspective, supplemented especially by materials from grief therapy, enables therapists to bring the immediate awareness - and acceptance - of mortality into the clinical work."Article| | Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "In this book, Jarvis Streeter details Ernest Becker's anthropological theories and compares them with traditional and contemporary Christian thought on human nature, sin, and salvation in order to see how the two approaches compare and where Becker might have insights to offer contemporary Christian thinkers. Ernest Becker was a pioneer in the interdisciplinary study of human nature and motivation, drawing from the fields of evolutionary biology, psychology, psychiatry, cultural anthropology, sociology, philosophy and religion to create what he termed a Science of Man. His goal was to understand the most basic human motives, particularly those that led to evil behavior in order to ameliorate them and create a more humane world. He concluded, following the thought of Alfred Adler, Otto Rank and philosophical and religious existentialism, that the related urges to avoid death anxiety, gain self-esteem and symbolically deny death were the key human motives ones which were also responsible for human evil and that religion has had a complex role to play for both good and ill in human history.""Article| Jarvis Streeter| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This book reads Ernest Becker both as a prophet of modernity and as a sensitive observer of its decline. Situated within the disciplinary approach of 'theology of culture,' the book discerns in dialogue with Becker the contours of modern vision in its depth-dimension. Taking note of Becker's works as a whole, it identifies the two master images of human existence—homo poeta and homo heroica—which articulate this dimension, situating them in scholarly debate and comparing and relating them to the contemporary situation."Article| Stephen W.
