One of the ten most influential books in America. —Library of Congress/Book-of-the-Month Club "Survey of Lifetime Readers"
"Viktor Frankl's timeless formula for survival. One of the classic psychiatric texts of our time, Man's Search for Meaning is a meditation on the irreducible gift of one's own counsel in the face of great suffering, as well as a reminder of the responsibility each of us owes in valuing the community of our humanity. There are few wiser, kinder, or more comforting challenges than Frankl's." —Patricia J. Williams, author of Seeing a Color-Blind Future: The Paradox of Race
"Dr. Frankl's words have a profoundly honest ring, for they rest on experiences too deep for deception… A gem of a dramatic narrative, focused upon the deepest of human problems." —Gordon W. Allport, from the Preface
"An enduring work of survival literature." —The New York Times
"[Man's Search for Meaning] might well be prescribed for everyone who would understand our time." —Journal of Individual Psychology
"An inspiring document of an amazing man who was able to garner some good from an experience so abysmally bad… Highly recommended." —Library Journal
"One of the great books of our time." —Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
"One of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years." —Carl R. Rogers (1959) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.
An account of the author's life amid the horrors of the Nazi death camps and the formulation of his theory of logotherapy. Logotherapy, the author's own version of existential analysis, is a contemporary and positive approach to the mentally or spiritually-disturbed personality, which stresses man's freedom to transcend suffering and find a meaning to life, regardless of circumstances. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

self-worth. I was suicidal. There were many instances descibed in this book where I found similarities
in my emotional make-up although my sufferings were no where near that dramatic and "hopeless".
In the words of Nietzsche : "He who has a WHY to live for can bear any HOW," I found peace within chaos.
Although I did not understand some of the more difficult arguments, the book set me on the path to find
my own meaning of life and the courage to live. I think that the meaning of life need not be one thing or
action but can be several but I can only think of one thing now. The meaning of my life now is to
touch the people I know or care about in the most tender and deep way I know how. And to see them happy even
for a brief moment by what I do for them is quite enough. And everyday is a new day and there is opportunity
me to do something positive in my own ways.
I was late to the party - most of you probably already read it - but I am at an age where looking for the meaning of my life is maybe more important than ever. Viktor Frankl, as you know, was a psychiatrist who was imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. There, while he suffered, he also learned, and when he was released, he wrote this book. Could we possibly have a more seasoned teacher?
I picked up dozens of life lessons, but for brevity's sake, will mention only a few. For much more, I highly, highly recommend this book. I don't think you can be fully educated about your life's course until you read it thoughtfully. And don't be afraid, as I was, of the heartbreaking circumstances of the camps. Frankl uses them as a basis for making his points, but doesn't sensationalize them. Even a wuss like me can handle it.
Here are some of the best concepts I gleaned from Man's Search for Meaning:
* Don't ask what is the meaning of life. Ask what meaning you are giving to your existence, for this is your responsibility.
* Meaning can be found in suffering. In America, we act like we're ashamed of it. Why not hold your head up and suffer proudly? Add it to your list of accomplishments. Don't seek it, but if you're stuck with it, do it well. Add it to your life's accounting.
* Man can endure anything if he sees a purpose. In one example, a widower couldn't rise above his grief. Frankl helped him see that by being the survivor, the man spared his late wife the pain. Thus he was heroic.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Great ideas, especially in the circumstances of a concentration camp. Search for the meaning is surely what makes the man tick, but how many people are truly aware of it?...Veröffentlicht am 17. Juni 2013 von Bojan Bjelic
