about this book

In this expanded edition of his classic work, internationally known Viennese psychiatrist Viktor E. Frankl sets forth the principles of existential psychiatry.  Frankl holds that man's search for meaning in existence is a primary facet of his being; if the search is unrequited, it leads to neurosis. The role of the therapist, then, is to help the patient discover a purposefulness in his life.

"Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler.''--American Journal of Psychiatry

"Well written and backed by powerful personal conviction, it contains many valuable practical hints."--American Journal of Psychotherapy
