1# Man’s Search for Meaning

Generations of readers have been attracted by Viktor Frankl’s autobiography because of its accounts of life in Nazi concentration camps and its guidance for spiritual survival. Frankl contends that while we cannot avoid suffering, we can choose how to deal with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. He bases this claim on his own experience as well as the accounts of his patients. His logotherapy idea is based on the conviction that the quest for meaning rather than pleasure is what drives people most. One of the most influential books in America is Man’s Search for Meaning, which continues to motivate us all to discover meaning in the act of living.
