Existential Psychology Existential Psychology represents a synthesis of philosophy and psychology. The philosophical bases were formed by Kierkegaard and Heidegger. The most popular one-sentence summary is "existence precedes essence". The followers who have translated their thinking into statements about personality include the Europeans Ludwig Binswanger, Medard Boss, and Victor Frankl. Major American theorists include Rollo May and Paul Tillich, but I will also include some writings of Salvatore Maddi. The following notes represent an attempt at a synthesis of the writings of many theorists. I will not attempt to associate each concept with it's originator. You can get this detailed information in a graduate class. The writings of Rollo May are considered as a primary source. Core of Personality I. Core Tendency: To achieve authentic being. Being signifies the special quality of human mentality (aptly called intentionality), that makes life a series of decisions, each involving an alternative that precipitates persons into an unknown future and an alternative that pushes them back into a routine, predictable past. Choosing the future brings ontological anxiety (fear of the unknown), whereas choosing the safe status quo brings ontological guilt (sense of missed opportunity). Authenticity involves accepting this painful state of affairs and finding the courage or hardiness to persist in the face of ontological anxiety and choose the future, thereby minimizing ontological guilt.

These days it's hard to really talk to someoneto learn much meaningful about them, to connect . That's one reason I decided to put on a web page some things I'd like to say if we had a chance to talk in person. Another reason is because I miss teaching Introductory Psychology. In some ways, I've gone on to bigger and better things, but there was something uniquely satisfying about teaching. Well, the world's changed, and now maybe the web is a better place for that. This website relates to my life as an "existential psychologist." I also have a completely different career in Statistics, with other web sites for that work.

The rest of this page contains an essay of sorts that describes my view of Existential Psychology. Thanks for visiting!

Introduction to the Humanistic Approach
The Humanistic Approach began in response to concerns by therapists against perceived limitations of Psychodynamic theories, especially psychoanalysis. Individuals like Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow felt existing (psychodynamic) theories failed to adequately address issues like the meaning of behavior, and the nature of healthy growth. However, the result was not simply new variations on psychodynamic theory, but rather a fundamentally new approach. There are several factors which distinguish the Humanistic Approach from other approaches within psychology, including the emphasis on subjective meaning, a rejection of determinism , and a concern for positive growth rather than pathology. While one might argue that some psychodynamic theories provide a vision of healthy growth (including Jung's concept of individuation ), the other characteristics distinguish the Humanistic Approach from every other approach within psychology (and sometimes lead theorists from other approaches to say the Humanistic Approach is not a science at all). Most psychologists believe that behavior can only be understood objectively (by an impartial observer), but the humanists argue that this results in concluding that an individual is incapable of understanding their own behaviora view which they see as both paradoxical and dangerous to well-being. Instead, humanists like Rogers argue that the meaning of behavior is essentially personal and subjective; they further argue that accepting this idea is not unscientific, because ultimately all individuals are subjective: what makes science reliable is not that scientists are purely objective, but that the nature of observed events can be agreed upon by different observers (a process Rogers calls

The Impact of Existential Philosophy on Modern Psychology by Sheldon Litt, Ph.D. It is now some 50 years since existentialism swept through the salons of European intellectual life. Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) may be considered one of the leaders of the existential philosophy movement. Few philosophers today are interested in this approach, but for some psychologists the influence of existentialistic ideas has been profound.
But the salient principle taken from Sartre is that elusive existential concept of freedom, which he brought to bear on human psychology. Man tries to conceal from himself his endless freedom, attempting instead to take refuge in the notion of a fixed or determined self (viz. ‘id’, ‘unconscious’) but the Sartrean view is that man makes himself by his choices. True, I cannot alter my past, but I can choose what meaning I wish to give it. Some people choose to allow the past to influence them, thereby diminishing responsibility for the present. Thus, they may select episodes from the past which they can then use to say – "See, this is why I’m lazy, my mother didn’t love me." But for Sartre this is bad faith or self-deception. Man deceives himself when he hides his freedom.

The American Psychological Association Symposium
on Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy:
September 5, 1959
George Aiken
Saybrook Graduate School
Most of these writers had not referred to European phenomenology or existentialism in their work, although the writings mentioned above indicate only a small sampling of related topics that they had investigated (May, 1959). The book Existence, published the year before the symposium, and co-edited by Rollo May, Ernest Angel, and Henri F. Ellenberger, was the first popular work to expose most of the general population in the United States to existential thought (Spiegelberg, 1972). The symposium at the annual APA Convention represented the first meeting of American psychologists in a public forum to discuss this topic. Two years after the symposium Rollo May (1961) edited Existential Psychology, a compendium of the talks given on that historical day. This paper will review the topics presented in the book, Existential Psychology. This precis will include: a discussion of the emergence on the American scene of existential psychology by Rollo May; a paper by Abraham H. Maslow on the value of existential psychology to American psychotherapists; a discussion on the relevance of death in psychology by Herman Feifel; a chapter on the existential bases of psychotherapy by Rollo May; a delineation of the objective versus the existential view of psychology by Carl R. Rogers; and a commentary on the above papers by Gordon W. Allport.

Is there a blueprint for the future? I will use this Column to share with you some of the new developments and projects. After the Existential Summit and the Membership Meeting at the July Meaning Conference, one thing has become very clear - we need to create a Division within the INPM. This new Division will be named the International Society of Existential Psychology and Therapy (ISEPT). After considerable debate on various thorny issues, ranging from the meaning of "existential" to the professional identify we want to adopt, we have decided to move forward with the ISEPT. The consensus is that such a Division is needed to provide a home, a forum for all those interested in research and therapy on existential issues. We believe that a truly authentic psychology requires an existential perspective.

They are part of the current call back to raw experience as prior to any concepts or abstractions. This amounts to what I believe to be a justified critique to the whole way of thinking of the western world in the 20th century, including orthodox positivistic science and philosophy, both of which badly need re-examination." Irrational Man : A Study in Existential Philosophy
For those of you who want to learn a lot about existentialism, and/or those of you who find Husserl, Heidegger, and Sartre to be dauntingly difficult and/or time-consuming, this book is hands-down the best. Written in the late 1950's, "Irrational Man" is largely responsible for introducing existentialism to America. Barret provides excellent summaries of the work of all of the major figures in existentialism (with the exception of Merleau-Ponty) and brilliantly integrates their work within Western literary, religious, artistic, and philosophical traditions. Barret provides great insight on the roots of existentialism in the history of Western civilization, and in doing so also constructs a highly informative narrative about that history itself.

existential psychology existential psychology Existential psychologistRollo May was critical of transpersonal psychology. He felt
Existential psychology is similar to transpersonal psychology in its concern for the search for meaning and purpose, the confrontation of death and aloneness, the necessity for choice and responsibility, and the demands of authenticity. However, existential psychology does not acknowledge anything beyond death and proposes that one remains identified with a separate ego-defined identity. There is awareness of the First Noble truth that all life is suffering, but there is no view of a way out or beyond the suffering. Yet confronting existential issues (such as death) may penetrate the illusion of the separate and alienated identity and lead to transpersonal experiences. The Buddha and the Christ both had existential crises which were pivotal. Furthermore, transpersonal experiences can bring one to deal with existential issues. Existential psychologist Rollo May was critical of transpersonal psychology. He felt that many approaches that call themselves transpersonal are an avoidance of existential realities and an attempt to deny the dark side of human nature.
