  • "Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished.
  • Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose."

Man's Search for Meaning
by Viktor E. Frankl

https://smile.amazon.com/Mans-Sea...op?ie=UTF8

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl is among the most influential works of psychiatric literature since Freud. The book begins with a lengthy, austere, and deeply moving personal essay about Frankl's imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years, and his struggle during this time to find reasons to live. The second part of the book, called "Logotherapy in a Nutshell," describes the psychotherapeutic method that Frankl pioneered as a result of his experiences in the concentration camps. Freud believed that sexual instincts and urges were the driving force of humanity's life; Frankl, by contrast, believes that man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. Frankl's logotherapy, therefore, is much more compatible with Western religions than Freudian psychotherapy. This is a fascinating, sophisticated, and very human book. At times, Frankl's personal and professional discourses merge into a style of tremendous power. "Our generation is realistic, for we have come to know man as he really is," Frankl writes. "After all, man is that being who invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who entered those gas chambers upright, with the Lord's Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips

Your comment was a way to politicize the thread, just as this comment does halfway through. And you still don't understand why you are being criticized, even though the argument has been laid out right out in front of you. Of course, you insert the Fake News comment whenever you can't provide something resembling a coherent argument in your defense. That's the go-to excuse for you types, kind of "the devil did it" for the 21st century.

This is a phenomenal book, one of the first I read when I went to college in this country, I remember it to this day. Can't recommend it enough, especially when you can get it for free.

My comment was my opinion on the book. In my opinion I made no reference to sexual abuse. I did make reference to the distorted perception of oppression going on in the NFL. The fact that the book found meaning in life in the worst of human conditions and NFL cant find enough meaning to get off their asses for the National Anthem. This was followed by comments that demonstrate that the poster hasnt even read the post, yet offers a rebuke of my opinion. Fake news at its best. The liberal way, speculation and emotion, and didn't even invest time into reading the book...... see you two in the mental hospital!

This book was recommended to me when during an Existentialism class about 20 years ago. It's a book every individual should read, as it is not a depressing story, but thought provoking and uplifting.
