Man's Search for Meaning ( Audio Cassette Unabridged)
|Man's Search for Meaning is more than a story of Victor E. Frankl's triumph: it is a remarkable blend of science and humanism and an introduction to the most significant psychological movement of our day.|
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.
