  • Rollo Reese May (1909–1994) was an American existential psychologist and author of the influential book Love and the Will (1969). He is one of the main defenders of humanistic approaches to psychotherapy and is a major American exponent of European existential thinking applied to psychotherapy. He believed that psychotherapy should be aimed at helping people discover the meaning of their lives and should deal with the problems of existence. The job of therapists is to help people find ways to contribute to the betterment of the society in which they live. Rollo May is known to Bulgarian readers with the book "A Man in Search of Himself" (published by "East-West", 2014). May was born in Ada, Ohio on April 21, 1909. He had a difficult childhood, his parents were divorced and one of his sisters was diagnosed with schizophrenia. He is the first son in a family of six children. His mother often left the children to fend for themselves while she cared for her sick daughter.

    His educational career took him to Michigan State University, where he taught English, but was removed from the position because of his involvement in a radical student magazine. After being asked to leave, he attended Oberlin College and earned a BA in English. He spent three years in Greece at Anatolia College. During this time, May studied with the physician and psychotherapist Alfred Adler. He was ordained as a minister soon after returning to the United States, but left the ministry after a few years to pursue a degree in psychology. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1942 and spent 18 months in a sanatorium. He later earned a doctorate from Columbia University in clinical psychology in 1949.
