Man's search for meaning

Man's search for meaning

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. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. At the heart of his theory, logotherapy is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure but the pursuit of what we find meaningful. This foundation philosophy, the genesis manifested in the depths of human depravity, is directly important in today's corporate leadership world. The question raised is what do you stand for as a leader - and to what extent are you willing to stand by those values? Man's Search for Meaning has become one of the most influential books in America; it continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living.
