    Description

    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.

    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.
