    • Famous book by Ernest Becker
    • Lots of praise for Rank, who I have never read. Also based a lot on Norman O. Brown
    • Ch 1
      • Kind of dumb dismissal of Buddhism, but oh well.
      • Pretty clear argument for death being basic – because anxiety is. Avoiding death is one of the prime evolved goals (not his language) so duh.
