Contents Notes
Experiences in a concentration camp -- Logotherapy in a nutshell -- Postscript 1984: The case for a tragic optimism. Frankls memoir describes life in Nazi death camps and offers lessons for spiritual survival. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, he argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward. At the heart of his theory, known as logotherapy, is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure but the pursuit of what we find meaningful. --Adapted from publisher description.
