Description:
It guides our thoughts and actions, from the great art we create to the devastating wars we wage. It's the real reason why we buy expensive cars and crave fame. Think you're not constantly thinking about death? This book shows it's at the heart of life.

Psychologists Sheldon Solomon, Jeff Greenberg, and Tom Pyszczynski have spent over twenty-five years researching the many ways that fear of death - and our desire to transcend it - guides our behaviour. Their groundbreaking theory offers a compelling new paradigm for understanding the choices we make in life reveals how we can better come to terms with death and learn to lead lives of courage, creativity, and compassion.
