143 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. PHILOSOPHY. The late existentialist Rollo May believed that creativity is the foundation of a life worth living. Here he discusses the importance of finding and nurturing creativity in an age when the threat of destruction is omnipresent. Beingcreative takes a surprising degree of courage and centeredness, Rollo says, but it is an essential contribution to oneself and the community at large. (Key Words: Philosophy, Creation, Rollo May, Delphic Oracle, Existentialism ).
A friend asked me what to read next, as he was wont to do after he read my last suggested book. After he read THE COURAGE TO CREATE he bought a case of the book that he carried in his trunk and gave to special people he ran into whom he knew would appreciate it. Other people have asked after they'd read the book why I hadn't told them about it before. This is not the Rollo May dense writing you might be familiar with in some of his other books but it strikes at the core of our existence and is something you will be forever thankful you read. If not, let me know and I'll buy it from you. It is much, much more than the title might indicate at first.
