According to Norman O. Brown the world needs more eros and less strife.
What is Eros? Becker defined it as "the urge to unification of experience, to form, to greater meaningfulness."
More Becker quotes from the Preface of Denial of Death: knowledge is "strewn all over the place, spoken in a thousand competitive voices." "there is no throbbing vital center.", "there has to be revealed the harmony that unites many different positions.""harmonization of the Babel of views on man and on the human condition, in the belief the time is ripe for a synthesis that covers the best thought in many fields from the human sciences to religion."
"not to oppose and to demolish opposing points of view but to include them into a larger theoretical structure."
"the problem is to find the truth under the exaggeration, excess elaboration, and distortion."
