Ernest Becker's seminal work, The Denial of Death, has become an underground classic since its publication in 1974. This study group offers an opportunity to read the book and reflect on Becker's stimulating and occasionally controversial insights. The group will be of particular interest to psychotherapists and analysts, but it is open to anyone who has an interest in the book's themes.
The group will meet over 10 sessions from January to July 2021. We will meet on Zoom from 6:00 to 7.30pm GMT (1pm to 2.30pm EST) on the following Tuesdays: 12 January; 2 February; 23 February; 16 March; 13 April; 4 May; 25 May; 15 June; 29 June; and 13 July.
The group will have 12 members. Attendance is free. Participants are requested to attend for the life of the group.
