At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.
"El hombre en busca de sentido" es el estremecedor relato en el que Viktor Frankl nos narra su experiencia en los campos de concentración.
Durante todos esos años de sufrimiento, sintió en su propio ser lo que significaba una existencia desnuda, absolutamente desprovista de todo, salvo de la existencia misma. Él, que todo lo había perdido, que padeció hambre, frío y brutalidades, que tantas veces estuvo a punto de ser ejecutado, pudo reconocer que, pese a todo, la vida es digna de ser vivida y que la libertad interior y la dignidad humana son indestructibles. En su condición de psiquiatra y prisionero, Frankl reflexiona con palabras de sorprendente esperanza sobre la capacidad humana de trascender las dificultades y descubrir una verdad profunda que nos orienta y da sentido a nuestras vidas.
La logoterapia, método psicoterapéutico creado por el propio Frankl, se centra precisamente en el sentido de la existencia y en la búsqueda de ese sentido por parte del hombre, que asume la responsabilidad ante sí mismo, ante los demás y ante la vida. ¿Qué espera la vida de nosotros?
El hombre en busca de sentido es mucho más que el testimonio de un psiquiatra sobre los hechos y los acontecimientos vividos en un campo de concentración, es una lección existencial. Traducido a medio centenar de idiomas, se han vendido millones de ejemplares en todo el mundo. Según la Library of Congress de Washington, es uno de los diez libros de mayor influencia en Estados Unidos.
'Viktor Frankl gives us the gift of looking at everything in life as an opportunity' Edith Eger, bestselling author of The Choice
'Offers a path to finding hope even in these dark times' The New York Times
A rediscovered masterpiece by the 16 million copy bestselling author of Man’s Search For Meaning
Just months after his liberation from Auschwitz renowned psychiatrist Viktor E. Frankl delivered a series of talks revealing the foundations of his life-affirming philosophy. The psychologist, who would soon become world famous, explained his central thoughts on meaning, resilience and his conviction that every crisis contains opportunity.
Published here for the very first time in English, Frankl's words resonate as strongly today as they did in 1946. Despite the unspeakable horrors in the camp, Frankl learnt from his fellow inmates that it is always possible to say ‘yes to life’ – a profound and timeless lesson for us all.
With an introduction by Daniel Goleman.
'Frankl’s is a voice that seems as necessary now as it was in the shadow of the Holocaust' Guardian
Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.'
In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.
“This is a book I reread a lot . . . it gives me hope . . . it gives me a sense of strength.”
—Anderson Cooper, Anderson Cooper 360/CNN
This seminal book, which has been called “one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought” by Carl Rogers and “one of the great books of our time” by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than fifty languages and sold over sixteen million copies. “An enduring work of survival literature,” according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl’s riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers since it was first published in 1946. At the heart of Frankl’s theory of logotherapy (from the Greek word for “meaning”) is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but rather the discovery and pursuit of what the individual finds meaningful. Today, as new generations face new challenges and an ever more complex and uncertain world, Frankl’s classic work continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living, in spite of all obstacles.
This gift edition come with endpapers, supplementary photographs, and several of Frankl’s previously unpublished letters, speeches, and essays. This book was published with two different covers. Customers will be shipped one of the two at random.
"Perhaps the most significant thinker since Freud and Adler," said The American Journal of Psychiatry about Europe's leading existential psychologist, the founder of logotherapy.
Even in the degradation and misery of Dachau concentration camp, Viktor Frankl retained the belief that the most important freedom of all is the freedom to determine one's own spiritual well-being. He wrote the international bestseller Man's Search for Meaning as a result of that experience, while in The Doctor and the Soul, Dr Frankl revolutionised psychotherapy with his theory of Logotherapy.
Viktor Frankl's work has been described as "the most important contributions in the field of psychotherapy since the days of Freud, Adler and Jung."
In The Doctor and the Soul, Dr Frankl maintains that the individual's most important need is to find meaning in life and the frustration of this need results in neurosis, suffering and despair. A doctor's work lies in finding personal meaning in a patient's life, no matter how dismal the circumstances of the life.
