This book, has to be one of the classics in my book. I was listening to an Earl Nightingale audio book and he mentioned this book in it. It sounded interesting so I decided to buy it. Now I must say I'm a bit partial because I realized while reading it that we share similar views on a lot of things.
And the way he ties everything together! It's really good.
I bought this book in pretty good condition for 1 cent which is great, but also kinda sad because it just goes to show how much intellectual genius is undervalued these days! But it's a great book and I highly recommend it for cerebral people. Paperback Verified Purchase.
Rollo May's understanding on the pressures of being human in this world are extraordinary. Writing in the shadow of World War Two, and the recent ending of the Korean war with its fears of global destruction, May introduces the idea of a new anxiety that treatens the person from the outside. Because of this, he sees a greater emphasis put on the familial, and interpersonal relationships of life.
His emphasis on the "morbid dependencey," on mother, the regressive giving up of one's responsible growing up into maturity is quite profound. Also the way May describes the loneliness, anxiety, guilt, and purposelessness of modern man hits the mark of the 21st century's post-modern environment.
He writes as one who is in the midst of his cultural commentary.
Rollo May has given us a masterpiece on understanding the predicament that so many people find themselves in: May has never disappointed. He always brings the broadest context into play as he illuminates any human issue; cogently and carefully explaining his concepts with examples from his own and clients experience.
He never plies you with information for its own sake or recipes for problem solving. Go to the editions section to read or download ebooks.
