9780807014271: Man's Search for Meaning

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Beacon Press, the original English-language publisher of Man's Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback edition with a new Foreword, biographical Afterword, jacket, price, and classroom materials to reach new generations of readers.

Review:

"An enduring work of survival literature" New York Times "If you read but one book this year, Dr Frankl's book should be that one." Los Angeles Times "His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition." Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks "Influential and eloquent." Jewish Chronicle "Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler." The American Journal of Psychiatry

Book Description:

Man's Search For Meaning is undoubtedly one of the seminal pieces of literature to emerge from World War 2: a moving account of Viktor Frankl's experiences in Auschwitz and what we can learn from them. Now in its 74th edition, it has been translated into at least 24 languages and sold over 9 million copies worldwide.
