Product description

Holocaust survivor Viktor E. Frankl converted the horrors he experienced in a German concentration camp into the pioneering philosophy he called logotherapy. Unlike Freud's "will to pleasure" and Adler's "will to power," Frankl based logotherapy on three things: the freedom of will, the will to meaning, and the meaning of life. By presenting three methodological concepts, Frankl shows how we can all reinvigorate our experiences and tie them to will and power. Originally published in 1988 and compiling Frankl's speeches on logotherapy, "The Will to Meaning" is regarded as a seminal work of behavior therapy.

Review quote

"Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler." - The American Journal of Psychiatry "Frankl is one of the most famous and gifted of all psychiatrists... The incredible attempts to dehumanize man at Auschwitz and Dachau led Frankl to commence the humanization of psychiatry through logotherapy. Frankl is a professional who possesses the rare ability to write in a layman's language." - Dr. Gerald F. Kreyche, Chairman "I regard this book as one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years." - Dr. Carl Rogers "Dr. Frankl's contribution to psychotherapy has been great. He is perhaps the only non-behaviorist to have contributed a method to behavior therapy. The modesty with which he has put forward his important work has been remarkable." - Dr. Joseph Wolpe
