Man's Search for Himself

Rollo May (Author)

Overview | Inside the Book

"Analyzes life as we are living it, and the analysis is truthful and profound."--New York Times

Loneliness, boredom, emptiness: These are the complaints that Rollo May encountered over and over from his patients. In response, he probes the hidden layers of personality to reveal the core of man's integration--a basic and inborn sense of value. Man's Search for Himself is an illuminating view of our predicament in an age of overwhelming anxieties and gives guidance on how to choose, judge, and act during such times.
