About the Book “Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for” - Viktor Emil Frankl's Man’s Search for Meaning is an account about all the experiences that he had at the concentration camp during the Second World War. This book describes Frankl’s observations about the various behaviours of his fellow inmates at the camp. His findings have formed a solid ground for psychological analysis, even today. This book is divided into two parts: Experiences in a Concentration Camp and Logotherapy in a Nutshell. This book instils our mind with the hope that even in the most absurd and painful times, we will figure out a way to stay positive and seem hopeful about the future. About the Book About the Author An Austrian Neurologist, Psychiatrist and a Holocaust survivor, Viktor Emil Frankl was the founder of logotherapy, which is a form of existential analysis. His best-selling book Man's Search for Meaning (published under a different title in 1959: From Death-Camp to Existentialism, and originally published in 1946 as Trotzdem Ja Zum Leben Sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager, meaning Nevertheless, Say "Yes" to Life: A Psychologist Experiences the Concentration Camp) chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate, which led him to discover the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most brutal ones. Viktor Frankl became one of the key figures in existential therapy and a prominent source of inspiration for humanistic psychologists.
