Summary
  • A prominent Viennese psychiatrist recounts his experiences in a Nazi concentration camp
  • "Man's Search for Meaning--at once a memoir, a self-help book, and a psychology manual--is the story of psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's struggle for survival during his tree years in Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps. Yet rather than "a tale concerned with the great horrors," Frankl focuses in on the "hard fight for existence" waged by "the great army of unknown and unrecorded." Viktor Frankl's training as a psychiatrist allowed him a remarkable perspective on the psychology of survival. In these inspired pages, he asserts the "the will to meaning" is the basic motivation for human life. This simple and yet profound statement became the basis of his psychological theory, logotherapy, and forever changed the way we understand our humanity in the face of suffering. As Nietzsche put it, "He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how." Frankl's seminal work offers us all an avenue to greater meaning and purpose in our own lives--a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the act of living."--Book jacket
