Rollo May

Rollo Reece May (April 21, 1909 – October 22, 1994) was an American existential psychologist and author of the influential book Love and Will (1969). He is often associated with humanistic psychology and existentialist philosophy, and alongside Viktor Frankl, was a major proponent of existential psychotherapy. The philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich was a close friend who had a significant influence on his work.

As well as Love and Will, May's works include The Meaning of Anxiety (1950, revised 1977) and, titled in honor of Tillich's The Courage to BeThe Courage to Create (1975).

The Courage to Create

Life requires different kinds of courage, but the late psychologist Rollo May argued that none is more important than the courage to create. For May, courage is the fountainhead of all virtues, and imagination, far from simply icing on the existential cake, is the source of human achievement and meaning in our lives.
