SAXO's beskrivelse

"Man's Search for Meaning" er den østriske psykiater Viktor Frankl's memoir, der siden dens oprindelige udgivelse i 1946 har fascineret flere generationer af læsere.
Frankl var koncentrationslejrfange i fire forskellige lejre - inklusiv Auschwitz - mellem 1942 og 1945, mens han far, bror og gravide kone døde. "Man's Search for Meaning" er baseret på hans oplevelser i koncentrationslejrene og på hans egne patienters oplevelser, der har inspireret hans teori om at man ikke kan undgå lidelse, men at man selv kan vælge hvordan man forholder sig til den og kommer videre. 
Frankls teori kaldes logoterapi og ifølge den, er livets drivkraft ikke nydelse som Freud mente, men opdagelsen af og jagten efter hvad der er meningsfuldt for en selv

Forlagets beskrivelse
With a new Foreword by Harold S. Kushner
and a new Biographical Afterword by William J. Winslade

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. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

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" foundMan's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Beacon Press, the original English-language publisher of Man's Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback edition with a new Foreword, biographical Afterword, jacket, price, and classroom materials to reach new generations of readers.

Udover at v?re en gribende historie, der udviser stort skrivetalent og oprigtighed, giver bogen et godt indblik i neurologi- og psykologiprofessorens tanker og konklusioner om bl.a. mening og fri vilje, og understreger pointer, f? mennesker i dag ville tage skade af at h?re.
