Description

Holocaust survivor Viktor E. Frankl is known as the founder of logotherapy, a mode of psychotherapy based on man's motivation to search for meaning in his life. The author discusses his ideas in the context of other prominent psychotherapies and describes the techniques he uses with his patients to combat the "existential vacuum."

Originally published in 1969 and compiling Frankl's speeches on logotherapy, The Will to Meaning is regarded as a seminal work of meaning-centered therapy. This new and carefully re-edited version is the first since 1988.

Critic Reviews

“"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”
