Read full description of the books La Voluntad de Sentido:As one of my colleagues first suggested, Viktor Frankl's writings are actually philosophical even though he was a psychiatrist and neurologist by profession. While this book is clearly not a textbook on applied logotherapy, it does provide a good theoretical framework for logotherapy and is worth reading for that alone. It is less autobiographical than Man's Search for Meaning and may disappoint some who are looking for emotional impact. However, for those who are looking to deepen their understanding of Frankl's concept of meaning it's a must read. Personally, I found the distinction between being and meaning on pages 51 and 52 and the concept of 'dimensional ontology' on pages 22 to 30 particularly valuable.
Also, Frankl is a man who clearly understands his place in psychology (Freud - will to pleasure, Adler - will to power, Frankl - will to meaning). Frankl's comparison of his work to that of Freud, Adler, and others helped put the development of psychology as a discipline in perspective.
In defence of Frankl, readers who see his as self-promotion are underestimating the momentous undertaking of bringing to bear a more humanizing approach to psychotherapy. I assert that Frankl knew that logotherapy would never become part of the psychology establishment.
Read information about the authorViktor Emil Frankl M.D., Ph.D., was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. Frankl was the founder of logotherapy, which is a form of Existential Analysis, the "Third Viennese School" of psychotherapy.
His book Man's Search for Meaning (first published under a different title in 1959: From Death-Camp to Existentialism. Originally published in 1946 as Ein Psycholog erlebt das Konzentrationslager) chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate and describes his psychotherapeutic method of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most sordid ones, and thus a reason to continue living. He was one of the key figures in existential therapy.
