To this end, we show a brief biographical sketch of May and a history of Humanistic Psychology in the U.S.; rescued some epistemological influences of his thinking, we describe the issues related to the concept of the Unconscious and the concept of human in May to provide some guidelines of Existential Psychology built for him.
