The Educational Theory of Ernest Becker.
Scimecca, Joseph A.
Journal of Educational Thought, v12 n2 p100-07 Aug 1978, Aug78
Ernest Becker developed a theory of education which stressed the liberation of the individual. Based upon the principles of "immortality-striving," i.e., the primacy of the repression of the thought of death, and "self-esteem maintenance," Becker offers an alternative system of education where one's own life, one's own freedom, becomes the basis of one's education.
