9780029022900: The Structure of Evil

From back cover: "In this book, Ernest Becker challenges the 'disinterested' approach of contemporary social science. He seeks to fulfill the urgent need for a science which is humanly significant--a 'science of man' which truly works for the benefit of human beings. Here, he pulls together the critical ideas of psychology, sociology, psychiatry, history and philosophy in a unified science of man, offering a vivid call to action for anyone concerned with the future development of the human community. The book bristles with astonishing insights and keen judgments. A work of vast historical sweep, it is grand in scope yet intensely human in perspective. ERNEST BECKER (1924-1974) won the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction in 1974 for 'The Denial of Death.' A distinguished social theorist and popular teacher of anthropology, sociology, and social psychology he was also the author of "the birth and Death of Meaning', 'Revolution in Psychiatry', 'Angel in Armor and 'Escape from Evil.'
