Summary
Here, Wuthnow examines the human response to existential threats. Freud, he notes, famously taught that the standard psychological response to an overwhelming danger is denial. In fact, Wuthnow writes, the opposite is true: we seek ways of positively meeting the threat, of doing something even if it's wasteful and time-consuming
