Man's Search for Meaning

Gift Edition

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. 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 others he treated later 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. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Customer Reviews

THE only book you will ever need for "life"

When I see all the psychology books for self help that how to help people deal with life's problems, I always think of this book. This is not just a story of a Man interred at a concentration camp during the Holocaust and stories of what occurred while he was there. It's much more. I read it 25 years go in college in my freshman philosophy course and I got It.

My 16 year old son went through a terrible drug problem and I handed him this book. He read it in one night bs it turned his life around.

Don't be blind. This is essential to your life's guiding principles.

Wonderful Surprise

I had heard that this was one of the most influential books ever written, so I bought it. But I put it aside for a long time, fearing the subject matter would simply be too dark and difficult to get through. I finally decided to commit to the experience, and I'm so glad I did! There was meaning and purpose behind every description of Dr. Frankl's experiences, which made it easier to stay in the story. And the wealth of wisdom, through hope, optimism, and determination, was life-changing. What a gift this man was, and still is, to everyone within reach of his books! I'm so glad I took this journey. I carry it with me as I step more confidently into my own search for meaning!
