Rollo May


Rollo May speaks about paradoxes. To confront our anxiety is a way of the renewal of our lives. We must confront our despair if we are to experience renewal in life. Out of the balance between one's freedom and one's nature comes not only health in its dynamic sense but there comes also creativity. May also speaks of the paradox of authentic love arising from the fact that we know that someday we will die. These truths should give us a new approach to our values and meaning to our lives.

This address was delivered in the spring of 1982 at Sacred Heart University as the first Dr. William H. Conley Charter Day Lecture.
