In "Psychology and the Human Dilemma," Rollo May, the distinguished psychoanalyst, presents his penetrating views of the conflicts involved in being a person in our modern socitey. Here he deals with man's loss of identity in the contemporary world, the sources of his anxiety, and the ultimate paradox of the concepts of freedom and responsibility. Even as he acknowledges that the twentieth century brings psychological dilemmas more pronounced and more difficult to endure than those of earlier times, Dr. May believes that our unique ability to comprehend paradox and wrestle with dilemma can enable us to develop constructively within the "human predicament."
