Description

  • Great product!
  • 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" found Man'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.
