The discovery of being : writings in existential psychology

May, Rollo (Author).

Rollo May brings together the ideas of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and other great thinkers to offer insight into the ideas and techniques of existential psychotherapy, of which he was a major force. He pays particular attention to the causes of loneliness and isolation and to our search for stability in order to move towards a future where responsibility, creativity, and love can play a role.
