|With more than 4 million copies in print in the English language alone, Man's Search for Meaning, the chilling yet inspirational story of Viktor Frankl's struggle to hold on to hope during his three years as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps, is a true classic. Beacon Press is now pleased to present a special gift edition of a work that was hailed in 1959 by Carl Rogers as "one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years". Frankl's training as a psychiatrist informed every waking moment of his ordeal and allowed him a remarkable perspective on the psychology of survival. His 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.|
Although Viktor E. Frankl is a talented psychotherapist and professor, he is remembered best for his philosophical autobiography, MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANING. This book, which tells of Frankl's experiences as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps, puts into practice his brand of existential psychotherapy called logotherapy. Dr. Frankl became interested in psychology and philosophy early on, and at age 16 gave his first lecture. He met Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler, and Oswald Schwarz, and earned his medical degree from the University of Vienna in 1930, opening his own psychiatry practice in 1937, just before the Nazi Anschluss. From 1942 to 1945, Frankl lived under the Nazis, moving from the ghetto to a series of camps; he lost his wife, mother, father, brother, and sister-in-law during this period. After his release, he published his autobiography, which has sold over 9 million copies. He continued to be an active psychotherapist and professor until his death in 1997.
