Rollo May (April 21, 1909October 22, 1994) was an American existential psychologist. He authored the influential book Love and Will in 1969.

Although he is often associated with humanistic psychology, he differs from other humanistic psychologists such as Virginia Satir, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers in emphasizing the tragic dimensions of human existence; unlike them, he built his thinking around the tenets of existentialist philosophy. May was a close friend of the theologian Paul Tillich. His works include Love and Will and The Courage to Create, the latter title honoring Tillich's The Courage to Be.
