From Ernest Becker, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Denial of Death, comes a penetrating and insightful perspective on the source of evil in our world. Escape from Evil is a profound, nourishing book which is absolutely essential to the understanding of our troubled times. It is an urgent essay that bears all the marks of a final philosophical raging against the dying of the light. Escape from Evil adds another bit of reason to balance destruction. It is, in the best sense of the words, both scientific and philosophical of the highest importance.
