Goodman, Paul

(1911–72) author, lecturer, psychotherapist; born in New York City. His prodigious outpouring of poetry, fiction, city planning, social criticism and gestalt therapy consistently articulated a vision of humanistic anarchism that made him the "father figure of the New Left." His best-selling Growing Up Absurd (1960) defended dropping out of school, an institution he found repressive of individuality.
