Few books in recent decades have had the continuing impact of Dr Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning—the classic best seller now considered to be one of the most important contributions to psychiatry since Freud. Frankl gives a moving account of his life amid the horrors of the Nazi death camps, chronicling the harrowing experience that led to his discovery of his theory of logotherapy. A profound revelation born out of his years as a prisoner in Auschwitz & other concentration camps, logotherapy is a modern & positive approach to the mentally or spiritually disturbed personality. Stressing the freedom to transcend suffering & find a meaning to life regardless of circumstances, it's a theory which, since its conception, has exercised a tremendous influence upon the entire field of psychiatry & psychology.

Here, Frankl not only describes the genesis & development of logotherapy but also explains its basic concepts, & in this revised enlarged edition, has included a new chapter, entitled "The Case for a Tragic Optimism," in which he updates theoretical conclusions of the book. The result is an invaluable work by one of the world's preeminent psychiatrists.

Work Description

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. At the heart of his theory, known as logotherapy, is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure but the pursuit of what we find meaningful. Man's Search for Meaning has become one of the most influential books in America; it continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living.
