Man's Search for Meaning


Product Description

Published USA, 1959. This edition 2004
This is Viktor Frankl's pivotal treatise. He draws on his years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps to develop a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as 'logotherapy'. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his 'search for meaning'. The narrative, brief though it is, is artfully constructed and a gripping read. As a psychotherapist, Frankl wants to know how men can be helped to achieve a distinctly human capacity. How can one awaken in a patient the feeling that he is responsible to life for something, however grim his circumstances may be?

Victor Frankl was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School until his death in 1997.
