Rollo May ✓ 3 free read characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Rollo May characters The Courage to Create Yaratma Cesareti Amerikan psikolojisi ve varoluşçu psikoterapinin önde gelen ismi Rollo May'in en temel yapıtlarından biri May psikoloji psikoterapi felsefe ve sanatla yakın ilişkisinden ötürü yaratıcılık konusunu ilginç bir perspektiften inceliyor Tüm varoluşçular gibi o da kaygı olgusuna büyük önem Rollo May is wise and inspiring The Courage to Create makes me long for a time when psychology was richer full of life and fed so much by the humanities and mythology as compared to the sterile narrow minded field we have today He retorts I do not use this term myth in the common present day deteriorated meaning of falsehood This is an error that could be committed only by a society that has become so inebriated with adding up empirical facts that it seals off the deeper wisdom of human history I use myth as meaning rather a dramatic presentation of the moral wisdom of the human race The myth uses the totality of the senses rather than just the intellect May brings together art religion psychology and science in a powerful way All rise from the same bed of creativity This book shows the empowering side of existential thought showing that life is an act of creation We cannot be without creating We express our being by creating Creativity is a necessary seuel to beingWe are called upon to do something new to confront a no man s land to push into a forest where there are no well worn paths and from which no one has returned to guide us This is what the existentialists call the anxiety of nothingness To live into the future means to leap into the unknown and this reuires a degree of courage for which there is no immediate precedent and which few people realize As Joseph Campbell often noted if you can clearly see the path ahead of you it certainly belongs to somebody else and is not your own He draws from other thinkers like Carl Jung Otto Rank Karl Marx Leibnitz Alfred Adler and William James and from artists and writers like Cezanne Shakespeare Picasso Keats Joyce and Rilke Artists are prophets and revolutionaries but the commandment also expresses the timeless fear that every society harbors of its artists poets and saints For they are the ones who threaten the status uo which each society is devoted to protectingthe creative artist and poet and saint must fight the actual gods of our society the god of conformism as well as gods of apathy material success and exploitative power Creativity grows out of the rage chaos and mystery of the unconscious personal and collective May chastises us for our own busyness which prevents us from complete living Of course when an individual is afraid of the irrational that is of the unconscious dimensions of experience he tries to keep busiest tries to keep most noise going on about him The avoidance of the anxiety of solitude by constant agitated diversion is what Kierkegaard in a nice simile likened to the settlers in the early days of America who used to beat on pots and pans at night to make enough din to keep the wolves away Take off those ear buds and put down your damn smart phones Face your solitude with courage He then hurls a challenge at our mechanized world explaining why artists are so distrusted or feared Irrational unconscious phenomena are always a threat to this mechanization Poets may be delightful creatures in the meadow or the garret but they are menaces on the assembly line Mechanization reuires uniformity predictability and orderliness and the very fact that unconscious phenomena are original and irrational is already an inevitable threat to bourgeois order and uniformityWe cannot escape our anxiety over the fact that the artists together with creative person of all sorts are the possible destroyers of our nicely ordered systemsMay affirms the tortured artist stereotype and praises them over their conforming counterparts for they ability to live with anxiety and ambiguity Creative peopleare distinguished by the fact that they can live with anxiety even though a high price my be paid in terms of insecurity sensitivity and defenselessness for the gift of the divine madness to borrow the term used by the classical Greeks I wish he would have kept out the final chapter of the book Passion for Form which felt flat and closed with his musings on the benefits of human limitations death place of birth height illness past decisions resources This is where his tempered existentialism really delivers I propose that it is the experience of this is the way things are meant to be If only for that moment we participate in the myth of creation Order comes out of disorder form out of chaos as it did in the creation of the universe This sense of joy comes from our participation no matter how slight in being as such The paradox is that at that moment we also experience vividly our own limitations We discover the amor fati that Nietzsche writes about the love of one s fate No wonder it gives a sense of ecstasy Western Civilization in the 21st century sorely needs hearts and minds to continue the tradition laid out by Rollo May
