Editorial Reviews for this title:
Viktor Frankl is known to millions of listeners as a psychotherapist who has transcended his field in his search for answers to the ultimate questions of life, death, and suffering. His smash bestseller Man's Search for Meaning sold over nine million copies worldwide.
These nine essays comprise a kind of sequel to the author's foundation work of "logotherapy" Man's Search for Meaning, with a focus on a person's spiritual rather than existential striving.
Frankl offers listeners a straightforward alternative to traditional Freudian psychoanalysis as MAN'S SEARCH FOR ULTIMATE MEANING explores the sometimes unconscious basic human desire for inspiration or revelation, and illustrates how life can offer profound meaning at every turn.
Viktor Frankl, author of the smash bestseller Man's Search for Meaning, offers a more straightforward alternative to traditional Freudian psychoanalysis: one's problems may be rooted in a failure to find a meaning in life beyond one's interior world. The basis for his interpretation, however, is not so straightforward. It lies in Frankl's existential analysis, plumbing for the reasons that people have repressed their consciences, their love, their creativity. By legitimizing a spiritual aspect of the human mind, Frankl has separated us definitively from the animal kingdom, but it is still up to each of us to rise to our human potential.
