1. THE HUMAN CONDITION - follow me on twitter: https://twitter.com/JasonSilva

    Ernest Becker's DENIAL OF DEATH won the Pulitzer Prize in 1973 for its dissection of the human condition. It turns out that it is not sexual repression that causes our collective neurosis, but rather it is our death anxiety. We are the only species that is aware of our mortality and this causes all kinds of cognitive stress.

    Becker identified 3 solutions mankind has employed to dilute the acute absurdity and tragedy of the human situation.

    They are THE RELIGIOUS SOLUTION, THE ROMANTIC SOLUTION, and THE CREATIVE SOLUTION
