Man\'s Search For Meaning (Paperback) Price: Rs.224

Man’s Search For Meaning, written by Viktor E. Frankl, is a gripping personal account, chronicling the struggle to survive at a Nazi concentration camp, which helped the author develop his psychotherapeutic method and logotherapy.

Summary Of The Book

On the surface, Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning is a memoir about surviving the Holocaust. On a philosophical level however, the author uses his experiences to identify psychological reactions to the terrors of a concentration camp, which were experienced by his fellow inmates. These experiences helped Frankl develop his psychotherapeutic methods, which would later help him become an important figure in the existential therapy arena.

The first part is titled, Experiences In A Concentration Camp. In this section, Frankl begins his memoir by vividly describing some of the horrific events that occurred in various concentration camps. Frankl was a neurologist and psychiatrist. As a result, he was sent to various camps to treat sick and ailing inmates. During his three years in captivity, Frankl paid particular attention to the behaviour of various inmates. From his observations, he made some significant deductions, which contributed to the humanistic movement.

Firstly, he realized that inmates who comforted others seemed to endure the trauma better and were more likely to survive. On the contrary, inmates who had become physically and psychologically overpowered by their circumstances, were most likely to die. Frankl also identified three common psychological reactions experienced by most inmates. He pointed out that upon first entering the camp, individuals experience a shock. After acclimating themselves to camp life, inmates develop an apathetic response, while only caring about the survival of their close relatives and friends. Frankl termed the final reaction as depersonalization, in which the inmate experiences bitterness and moral deformity.
In the second part titled, Logotherapy in a Nutshell, Frankl talks in detail about various aspects of logotherapy, and how the meaning of life can be obtained from such harrowing experiences.

Man’s Search For Meaning has sold more than ten million copies worldwide. It has also been translated into over 20 languages, and can be found in many influential book club lists.

During the Holocaust, Frankl, his wife, brother, and parents were all sent to the concentration camps.

AN AMAZINGLY INSPIRATIONAL BOOK

This is one of THE BEST book I have read in a long time -highly inspirational, truly autobiographical , and admirably free from any kind of self projection . A short book of about 160 pages , it carries within its pages profound yet simple truths of life written in a very reader friendly style . The central theme of the book --gathered from the author`s own experience and observation in the concentration camps of Hitler --is that even the worst happening of anyone`s life cannot take away from you the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR RESPONSE -which ,if positive , can give lots of meaning to your suff...

The central theme of the book --gathered from the author`s own experience and observation in the concentration camps of Hitler --is that even the worst happening of anyone`s life cannot take away from you the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR RESPONSE -which ,if positive , can give lots of meaning to your sufferings in life , besides making it worthwhile to live for . The author also says that happiness , peace of mind and such other values of life can never be abstract concepts -and can only be the result of something positive you do in your life .
He also explains what is Logotherapy which is based on a conscious orientation of mind to positive way of living as a choice and not leaving the course of your life to drift on its own and take you astray .

A must read book for any any age --even for people above 65 plus!!

An amazing read

The way Viktor has elaborated upon his school of thought though his own story is marvelous. It is a gripping book, once u start reading it, you cant put it down. The logotherapy he has described in this book is somewhat disputable, but every school of psychiatry has its own good and bad side, parts of which to be incorporated in our life left completely on the reader's discretion.
This book will leave you wondering about the downfall of humanity as a whole and still survival of hope. It breaks a lot of myth we hold about life and its purpose, often trying to decipher the meaning though som...

This book will leave you wondering about the downfall of humanity as a whole and still survival of hope. It breaks a lot of myth we hold about life and its purpose, often trying to decipher the meaning though some kind of big picture.
Though logotherapy relies completely on a paradigm shifting big picture which leads us away from our possible source of consolation, but it also has its building blocks as the small tiny ancient myths we hold about happiness and life in our day to day life.
Viktor's story of survival though the Holocaust is both enlightening and still stirs deep emotions. A must read

Consoling book.

This book really consoles u. Vicktor Frankl has written about his experience in the Auschwitz concentration camp..U may think of all the horror but the writer has adopted a very psychological approach to it. He does not complain or curse anyone in-spite of the misery he had to go through but on the contrary makes the reader aware of the importance of having a meaning in life. According to the writer, who also is a pioneer of Logo therapy, meaning can be found in three things- 1) In something to do 2) In loving someone and 3) in suffering the inevitable pain.

According to the writer, who also is a pioneer of Logo therapy, meaning can be found in three things- 1) In something to do 2) In loving someone and 3) in suffering the inevitable pain.

The influence of Nietzsche and Dostoyevsky on the writer is clearly evident. The later part of the book consist of a brief description of Logo therapy. There is a lot of technical jargon in it.

its definitely an unputdownable book. Its a must read.

Good book

Man's Search For Meaning is a reminder of the ugly past yet a survival guide for the future. Life is not just about living as it unfolds. As an intellectually active species, our own fate revolves around our own mind. If the future is unknown it doesnt mean its Uncertain. The certainity of tomorrow has a strong linkage with today. This book also make us think about what is Love and its another facet. Holocaust is a piece of history but lessons from that will stay vividly through Viktore E Frankl as long as man kind exists..Rajesh

Excellent, a must-read Master Piece

I consider the opportunity to read & understand the Master Piece of Dr. Viktor E. Frankl is in itself, a blessing.

" The way in which a man accepts his fate & all the suffering it entails, even under the most difficult circumstances, add a deeper Meaning to his life. "

Though i am restricted by a limited exposure, iam confident ,that, this book is a pinnacle in understanding Human Psychology.
