Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning

Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning

Author: Viktor E. Frankl Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/07/2011

Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.

Man's Search For Meaning The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust (With New Material)

Author: Viktor E. Frankl, Martin Gilbert Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/01/2011

A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Only those who allowed their inner hold on their moral and spiritual selves to subside eventually fell victim to the camp's degenerating influence - while those who made a victory of those experiences turned them into an inner triumph. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

The Feeling of Meaninglessness A Challenge to Psychotherapy and Philosophy

Author: Viktor E. Frankl Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/07/2010

In The Feeling of Meaninglessness, Viktor Frankl, the founder of logotherapy, a psychotherapeutic method which focus on a will to meaning as the driving force of human life, takes a look at how the modern condition affects the human search for meaning. In this series of articles and essays, he discusses how many people suffer from pervasive feelings of meaninglessness in their lives, despite the great material comforts of industrial society. He attributes this sense of meaninglessness to a neglect of our existential needs and offers practical insights and guidelines for how to overcome this meaninglessness and regain mental health through engagement with our existential needs and selves.

Man's Search for Meaning

Author: Viktor E. Frankl Format: eBook Release Date: 20/04/2010

Man's Search for Meaning is the chilling yet inspirational story of Viktor Frankl's struggle to hold on to hope during the unspeakable horrors of his years as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of those he treated in his practice, 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. Through every waking moment of his ordeal, Frankl's training as a psychiatrist lent him a remarkable perspective on the psychology of survival. As a result of these experiences, Dr. Frankl developed 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. Frankl's assertion that ';the will to meaning' is the basic motivation for human life has forever changed the way we understand our humanity in the face of suffering.Frankl's riveting memoir was named one of the Ten Most Influential Books in America after a 1991 survey by the Library of Congress and Book of the Month Club. This revised and updated version includes a new postscript: ';The Case for a Tragic Optimism.'
