Paul Goodman (9 September 1911 New York City2 August 1972) was an American sociologist, poet, writer, and public intellectual. He described his politics as anarchist, his loves as bisexual, and his profession as that of "man of letters". Goodman is now mainly remembered as the author of Growing Up Absurd and an activist on the pacifist Left in the 1960s and an inspiration to that era's student movement. He is less remembered as a co-founder of Gestalt Therapy in the 1940s and '50s.
