Ernest Becker was a celebrated Jewish-American writer, famous for his work ‘The Denial of Death’. His writing and books were influenced by the impact of social psychology and psychology of religion. His highly successful ‘Terror Management Theory’ has led to creation of over 200 published studies. He transformed his agenda of cultural affects of death anxiety into a proven scientific axiom. His other notable works include ‘The Lost Science of Man’, ‘The Structure of Evil’ and ‘Angel in Armor: A Post-Freudian Perspective on the Nature of Man’. After his death, the Ernst Becker Foundation was established which monitors study of human behavior based on Becker’s research and theories. A documentary film titled ‘Flight from Death’, based on Becker’s inference on the reduction of violence in human society, was released in 2009. Here are few quotes and sayings from this famous anthropologist.
