Man’s Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy

Man's Search for Meaning, an Introduction to logotherapy

Dr. Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning – is considered to be one of the most important contribution to psychiatry studies. In this book, he shares the horrors he faced at the Nazi death camp and how this life experience led him to discovery of logo-therapy. This theory revolves around the idea that the primary motivation force for an individual is to find a meaning in life. In this book, he states that it is our responsibility to find that meaning by identifying the things they can do to help unfold the significance. This book makes an interesting read as the author connects the dots between his death camp experiences and observation with the development and implementation of logo-therapy, which makes it a must read book for those who have seem to lost their way in life.
