Return to Book Page. Viktor E. Frankl, conocido mundialmente por su obra El hombre en busca de sentido y como fundador de la Logoterapia, denominada tambien la Tercera Escuela Vienesa de Psicoterapia, nos muestra en este libro que el hombre no solo se halla dominado por una impulsividad inconsciente, como pretende Freud, sino que tambien hay en el una espiritualidad inconsciente. A partir del Viktor E. A partir del modelo de la conciencia y de la interpretacion de los suenos, enriquecido con ejemplos de su practica clinica, Frankl logra persuadir al lector, por medios empiricos, de que subyace en el hombre una religiosidad que implica la presencia ignorada de Dios.

Take the beginning of the chapter "The Transcendent Quality of Conscience": Essentially, phrases such as the "voice of the conscience" or being "a servant to one's conscience" are taken to be proof that the conscience is something beyond ourselves--that it is transcendent.
As a linguist, my first thought was, do such phrases exist cross-linguistically in hundreds of languages? But even so, I really can't take this as proof of any kind of psychological fact. The rest of the chapter elaborates on this concept without further exploring whether it's actually valid.
Nonetheless, Frankl's ideas are a bit uplifting and will likely make you feel a bit more positive about life if nothing else. It seems to be that many readers got that out of his memoir.

Outside his field, he consistently misunderstands the ideas he argues against the death of God, the white savior critique, materialism , and when he does understand someone p.
Regarding materialism, either he misunderstands it as a psychiatric theory, or he actually believes that therapy is prior to ontology. Either is pitiable. Frankl understands the death of God to be something personal, rather than, to paraphrase a contemporary theorist, about the drying up of a wellspring of meaning, and with it a whole form of human life.
Thinking I had picked up the storied, heralded "Man's Search for Meaning", I was mesmerized by Frankl's easy way with discussing abstract psychological concepts, and applying them to concrete situations.
But the shine did not wear off once I learned it was another "meaning" book by the logo-therapy trailblazer. Frankl here concerns himself with that murky line between psychological analysis and religious exploration that both intertwine with self-development.
His religious discussion is decidedly Thinking I had picked up the storied, heralded "Man's Search for Meaning", I was mesmerized by Frankl's easy way with discussing abstract psychological concepts, and applying them to concrete situations. His religious discussion is decidedly open and mystical when he writes that religion goes beyond the "concept of God promulgated by many representatives of denominational and institutional religion".
Using his logotherapy analysis, a type of existential inquiry into meaning, Frankl examines how religion can help one actualize. Little is paid to the method of logotherapy, but he succinctly describes it as: will to meaning; meaning in suffering; freedom of will.
At one points he writes the task of logotherapy to let conscious mind find religiousness. Frankl writes beautifully, although sometimes vaguely about happiness, meaning, religion, suffering and the preciousness of life.
One of my favorite quotes from him is "happiness is the side effect of living out the self-transcendence of existence". Knowledge and the knowledge of its limits. These ideas may not have quantitative evidence behind them that many modern readers appreciate. The content is at times airy and at times unstructured. But to those of us who appreciate both the zeal and tranquility of life's quiet reflections, a work like this is enriching our deeper levels of human experience.
View 1 comment. This was a very good book! I learned that we can find meaning to every single situation and reason, that there might be something other than a whole, wide meaning to life.. Journey on the search for meaning just got a lot more wider and is accompanied by even more clarity. View all 3 comments. This book came highly recommended to me.
The author is a psychiatrist and neurologist who is also a Holocaust survivor. The book talks about logotherapy, spirituality and the search for meaning in life. Unfortunately it wasn't a book for me or at least not for me at this moment. I found the first third quite confusing and sometimes bewildering the chapter on dream interpretation Stil This book came highly recommended to me.
Still, next I'm planning on grabbing his previous book about his life in concentration camps and how this philosophy of life helped him. If you are a graduate student or even an undergraduate student of psychiatry, this book will be very likely a page turner for you.
I'm not so it was slow going at first unlike the first book, Man's Search for Meaning. The terms and language used are at a higher academic level even for someone with a Masters degree in engineering!
But eventually it turned more practical and used examples to make the author's points more understandable. And there were certainly some memorable nuggets that I found: If you are a graduate student or even an undergraduate student of psychiatry, this book will be very likely a page turner for you.
And there were certainly some memorable nuggets that I found: -Be the master of your will and the servant of your conscience. And there's more. But I do have to say I got so much out of the first book that my expectations were probably too high as a more general reader for thid book.
If you have already read and liked the first book, this may be something of interest for you. But it is very academic in my opinion! In that book it was about his experiences in a concentration camp during World War 2 and how he found meaning to his existence whilst there which led to him developing logotherapy and becoming a celebrated psychiatrist and psycho therapist.
One man went to him devastated about his wife's death which had left him alone. Viktor told him he should think that he is suffering instead of his wife and has spared her this ordeal. One thing he often focuses on is a life has to have meaning and an example of this is lab rats had a lever that every time they pressed it produced food. At first they ate lots and lots of food but then it lost its meaning and they went off food and sex.
It is only by having sad experiences we can appreciate the good times. Everything is relative. In a concentration they enjoyed great happiness eating a bit of stale bread because they were starving and if they had been well fed would have turned their noses up at it. Another thing is expectations where we expect something and if it disappoints we are upset but if it exceeds our expectations no matter how little we expect are happy.
This is only a short book of around pages and Viktor is from Vienna in Austria which of course was invaded by Hitler during World War 2. This is a very interesting book and I enjoyed reading it. While vacationing in Brooklyn, a girl whose lent me her couch to sleep on called me a hippie for reading this book. I panicked and tried to convince her, and myself, that I was NOT a dirty hippie. I don't smoke pot, or listen to jam bands, or even love everybody.
At the same time, this book really is intensively self-reflective. Frankl's Logotherapy is a great response to life in my opinion, and his philosophy has a lot of value that you can take with you after you're done reading.
