'Every human being should read this book' Simon Sinek
One of the outstanding classics to emerge from the Holocaust, Man's Search for Meaning is Viktor Frankl's story of his struggle for survival in Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps. Today, this remarkable tribute to hope offers us an avenue to finding greater meaning and purpose in our own lives.
In this classic work, internationally known Viennese psychiatrist Viktor E. Frankl, founder of the school of logotherapy, sets forth the principles of existential psychiatry. He holds that man's search for meaning in existence is a primary facet of his being; if the search is unrequited, it leads to neurosis. The role of the therapist, then, is to help the patient discover a purposefulness in life.
Holocaust survivor Viktor E. Frankl is known as the founder of logotherapy, a mode of psychotherapy based on man's motivation to search for meaning in his life. The author discusses his ideas in the context of other prominent psychotherapies and describes the techniques he uses with his patients to combat the "existential vacuum."
Originally published in 1969 and compiling Frankl's speeches on logotherapy, The Will to Meaning is regarded as a seminal work of meaning-centered therapy. This new and carefully re-edited version is the first since 1988.
Eleven months after he was liberated from the Nazi concentration camps, Viktor E. Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna. The psychiatrist, who would soon become world famous, explained his central thoughts on meaning, resilience, and the importance of embracing life even in the face of great adversity.
Published here for the very first time in English, Frankl’s words resonate as strongly today—as the world faces a coronavirus pandemic, social isolation, and great economic uncertainty—as they did in 1946. He offers an insightful exploration of the maxim “Live as if you were living for the second time,” and he unfolds his basic conviction that every crisis contains opportunity. Despite the unspeakable horrors of the camps, Frankl learned from the strength of his fellow inmates that it is always possible to “say yes to life”—a profound and timeless lesson for us all.
"El hombre en busca de sentido" es el estremecedor relato en el que Viktor Frankl nos narra su experiencia en los campos de concentración.
Durante todos esos años de sufrimiento, sintió en su propio ser lo que significaba una existencia desnuda, absolutamente desprovista de todo, salvo de la existencia misma. Él, que todo lo había perdido, que padeció hambre, frío y brutalidades, que tantas veces estuvo a punto de ser ejecutado, pudo reconocer que, pese a todo, la vida es digna de ser vivida y que la libertad interior y la dignidad humana son indestructibles. En su condición de psiquiatra y prisionero, Frankl reflexiona con palabras de sorprendente esperanza sobre la capacidad humana de trascender las dificultades y descubrir una verdad profunda que nos orienta y da sentido a nuestras vidas.
La logoterapia, método psicoterapéutico creado por el propio Frankl, se centra precisamente en el sentido de la existencia y en la búsqueda de ese sentido por parte del hombre, que asume la responsabilidad ante sí mismo, ante los demás y ante la vida. ¿Qué espera la vida de nosotros?
El hombre en busca de sentido es mucho más que el testimonio de un psiquiatra sobre los hechos y los acontecimientos vividos en un campo de concentración, es una lección existencial. Traducido a medio centenar de idiomas, se han vendido millones de ejemplares en todo el mundo. Según la Library of Congress de Washington, es uno de los diez libros de mayor influencia en Estados Unidos.
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.
The Library of Congress called it “one of the ten most influential books in America”; the New York Times pronounced it “an enduring work of survival literature”; and O, The Oprah Magazine praised it as “one of the most significant books of the twentieth century.” Man’s Search for Meaning has long riveted readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. This new young readers’ edition brings a beloved classic to a new generation of readers, offering a universal tribute to coping with suffering and finding one’s purpose. An abridged text of the original book (emphasizing Frankl’s personal story, while omitting some material on his psychological theory of logotherapy) is presented here, along with supplemental materials that vividly bring Frankl’s story to life, and a foreword by prominent young adult author John Boyne. Man’s Search for Meaning: A Young Readers’ Edition will help readers ages twelve to eighteen grasp Frankl’s enduring lessons on perseverance and strength with clarity and depth.
