Viktor E. Frankl – Man’s Search for Meaning

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has riveted generations of readers using its explanations of life in Nazi loss of life camps and its own lessons for religious success. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, sibling, and pregnant wife perished. Predicated on his own experience and the encounters of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that people cannot avoid struggling but we can pick how to handle it, find signifying in it, and progress with renewed intent. Frankl’s theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek term logos (“meaning”)-holds our main drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud managed, but the finding and quest for what we individually find meaningful.





During Frankl’s death in 1997, Man’s Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 audience study for the Library of Congress that asked visitors to mention a “publication that made a notable difference in your daily life” found Man’s Search for Meaning among the ten most important books in the us.



Beacon Press, the initial English-language publisher of Man’s Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback release with a fresh Foreword, biographical Afterword, and class room materials to attain new decades of readers.
