Rollo May was personally very familiar with the creative process: he was not only a pioneering psychotherapist, philosopher, prolific and poetic author, and sought after teacher and lecturer, but also a gifted watercolorist with great appreciation for art and music. So, in these hundred-or-so pithy and entertaining pages, he shares with readers some core truths about creativity and its psychology. Courage, as the book's apt title implies, is at the very heart of creativity, since to be creative requires us to risk seeing reality anew, and to try (typically not wholly successfully) to express our experiences in creative work, despite the anxiety such soul-searching and self-revealing endeavors inevitably engender. Creativity always requires taking a chance on one's self-- meeting one's unconscious, or shadow, or what May called the daimonic--and moving ahead despite self-doubts, discouragement and anxiety. Courage, as May makes clear, is not the absence of insecurity, fear, anxiety or despair, but resides in the decision to move through these feelings as constructively or creatively as possible. For anyone struggling with the creative process, this classic meditation on creativity can provide welcome encouragement.

First of all, who the hell writes a book review without ever reading it? Moving on, I would give limited praise for this book. In terms of May's other work, it does not surpass something like "the cry for myth." I should like to bring to your attention that the book is a collection of lectures and vary in their quality when transformed into essays. A few are thought provoking and a few are irrelevant and the rest are in between. It's worth reading if you enjoy existential psychology and are curious about creativity. If you just want to know about existential psychology, choose a better book.

Drawing on sources like Paul Tillich, May writes ably about the psychology of creativity--but not in hugs-and-rainbows fashion, for as Stephen Diamond has emphasized in his own writings, creativity always carries what I think of as a dangerous edge to it, the breath of the daimonic. Read this book to see why creativity is so central to the human experience. (Dunno if I'm allowed to do this in a review, but (see below) what's the deal with letting people post reviews in which they admit they haven't even read the book? )

I believe if we are to create we must have courage. We must not be afraid to confront ourselves and our fears. Its easy to be apathetic, its easy to live off other peoples opinions, its hard to find our own, are opinions are our creations. It is hard to let ourselves feel comfortable with just our inside voice, why must we depend on outside voices, what we create is a reflection of what we have lived. Our lives are our creations, do we have enough courage to control it, why am I so vague?

I read it last... maby 15 years ago. And at the time, I "bought the book by it's cover". And I "lucked" out: creativity is a frontier... and truth is tougher than the bad pulp-fiction that we can readily hash out and regurgitate to ourselves...and just as likely validate like the one too few lotto tickets that we bought with our "home-boy" friends -- but never checked the numbers: heck were too smart for those odds -- but then tell that to the longshoreman 50-60 something Vanghogh... ticket holder:::
we're not talkin Dutch realism here:. We're talkin punk-rock-give-me-a-fifth-and-an-instrument-and-i-can-do-the-same-thing-"last temtation of christ"-mirror-lotto ...f__k i can relate to the aRTIs/ (i am a lesser god = but a god none the less)/
ALSO: we got some Bradshaw honesty here.
those gals who's MoMs said nothing. ...felt bad. but they were less schewed. that those who were told one thing, but experienced something else.
