Irvin D. Yalom

Irvin D. Yalom M.D. is an author of fiction and nonfiction, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University, existentialist and psychotherapist.


  • What an existential approach is about is positing that our bad feelings, our dysphoria, our despair, our anxiety emanates not only from our own life history and all the traumas we may have had in the past, and not only from the figures that we have introjected — many of these figures being unloving, or uncaring, or neurotic on their own parts — and emanates not only from our current life crises, but it emanates also, also, from our confrontation with the existential facts of life, with our confrontation with the human condition.
