Publisher's Summary

What if imagination and art are not, as many of us might think, the frosting on life but the fountainhead of human experience? What if our logic and science derive from art forms rather than the other way around? In this trenchant volume, Rollo May helps all of us find those creative impulses that, once liberated, offer new possibilities for achievement. A renowned therapist and inspiring guide, Dr. May draws on his experience to show how we can break out of old patterns in our lives. His insightful audiobook offers us a way through our fears into a fully realized self.


What the Critics Say

"A signal testimonial to the creative spirit.... A brilliantly incisive exploration of the creative 'encounter' - the coming to grips of the healthily committed creative artist or thinker with his sociocultural background and with his own dangerously Promethean impulses." (Publishers Weekly)
"Extraordinary, wise, and hopeful...nearly poetic meditations." (Boston Globe)
