Author: Ernest Becker, PhDDr. Becker was a cultural anthropologist, author, college professor, social scientist, and philosopher. He received his Ph.D. from Syracuse University in New York. In 1974 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book The Denial of Death. The honor was awarded to him two months after his own death from cancer at the age of 49.
Becker's groundbreaking work is now supported by numerous studies that support the universal motive of death denial as advanced by Becker. Escape from Evil (1975) was published by his wife, and further amplifies Becker's views.
