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.

2. The Impact Of Existential Philosophy On Modern Psychology
homepage. The Impact of Existential Philosophy on Modern Psychology. Thus, existential psychology allows no merit for simple adjustment to social norms.

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.

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.

existential psychology existential psychology Existential psychologist Rollo 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.

The field of Humanistic-Existential psychology
Reinventing Humanistic-Existential psychology
The discipline of psychology seems to be forever reinventing itself. What I mean by this is that new ideas and developments come along, only to be identified later as having been anticipated, and sometimes very well worked out in the work of the pioneers of the discipline, such as William James, Wilhelm Wundt and Wilhelm Dilthey, etc. This may very well be due to the nature of human knowledge itself. In all disciplines, theories and ideas go into decline, they get forgotten, only to be rediscovered at some later point in history, often in ignorance of the earlier versions of the same theories and ideas. Although I do not believe that the ideas and findings of Humanistic-Existential psychology have as yet been forgotten, what I do believe is that if they were forgotten then they would certainly need to be reinvented. That the field is in decline is illustrated well by the following estimate of the current state of the field taken from the entry in the

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.

Existential psychology
by Jane Spear
Existential psychology is an approach to psychology and psychotherapy that is based on several premises, including: understanding that a "whole" person is more than the sum of his or her parts; understanding people by examining their interpersonal relationships, understanding that people have many levels of self-awareness that can be neither ignored nor put into an abstract context, understanding that people have free will and are participants rather than observers in their own lives, and understanding that people's lives have purpose, values, and meaning. Therapists who practice existential psychology treat their clients by submerging themselves in the client's world. For the therapist, therapy is a process in which they, too, are participating. This is a process that seeks meaning within the whole of the person's existence, including the client's personal history. An important distinction exists between the concept of existentialism and existential phenomenology, even if the two are often linked to one another. According to a leading existential psychologists, Swiss psychiatrist Ludwig Binswanger, "...while the existential therapist enters into the phenomena present before and with him or her, existentialism does not confine itself to states of withness. It includes the existence of the whole being." In other words, existential therapists are concerned with the whole of their clients as they can experience with them, whereas existential phenomenology studies the whole being-that which can be experienced as well as that which cannot. Binswanger formulated his belief around three different aspects of human existence. These included the

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.

Coming Soon! The International Journal of Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy (IJEPP) The International Journal of Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy is the official publication of the International Society for Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy. It will be a peer-reviewed, full-text scholarly journal that provides fast, on-line publications as well as traditional, hard-copy publication of annuals. The Purpose and Ethos IJEPP is dedicated to supporting the international exploration of all aspects of human existence, especially the uniquely human capacity of transformation through meaning-seeking and meaning-making. It brings together innovative, original articles from the wide spectrum of the existential community, ranging from existential-phenomenological psychology and philosophy and existential-humanistic psychology, to constructivist psychology and narrative therapy. Any attempt to define human existence in a narrow, dogmatic way inevitably denies its richness and mysteries. No one school of psychology is large enough to encompass the various dimensions and levels of existence. Therefore, the new journal encourages the bridging between different traditions and cultures and fosters the blazing of new trails.
