Memento Mori: The Quest for Immortality

Ernest Becker’s The Denial of Death begins with a dedication “To the memory of my parents, who unwittingly gave me–among other things–the most paradoxical gift of all: a confusion about heroism.” A quote from Spinoza follows: “Not to laugh, not to lament, not to curse but to understand.” In Becker’s work, this quest for understanding centers on human anxiety about death and on the echoes of this existential dread in the lives of individuals and entire civilizations. 230 more words
