Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years."- Professor Carl Rogers

"The author attempts to subject the great phenomenon of life to a new evaluation... Well written backed by powerful personal conviction, it contains many valuable practical hints."- American Journal of Psychotherapy

"Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler... Unconditional faith in an unconditional meaning is Dr. Frankl's message to the reader."- American Journal of Psychiatry

Meet the Author

Viktor E. Frankl, M.D., Ph.D. is professor of neurology and psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School and distinguished professor of logotherapy at the United States International University in San Diego, California.  He is the originator of what has come to be called the Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy (after Freud's psychoanalysis and Adler's individual psychology): the school of logotherapy.

Dr. Frankl's first article was published in 1924 in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis.  Since then he has written twenty-seven books, which have been translated into virtually every major language in the world.  The American edition of his book Man's Search for Meaning has sold over two million copies to date.

Dr. Frankl has been a visiting professor at Harvard, Southern Methodist, Stanford, and Duquesne universities, and has had honorary doctorate degrees conferred upon him by twelve universities.  He is president of Austrian Medical Society of Psychotherapy and an honorary member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.  In 1985 he was awarded the Oskar Pfister Award by the American Psychiatric Association.

Dr. Frankl's works in English translation include The Doctor and Soul: From Psychotherapy to Logotherapy; Man's Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy; Psychotherapy and Existentialism: Selected Papers in Logotherapy; The Will to Meaning: Foundations and Applications of Logotherapy; The Unconscious God: Psychotherapy and Theology; and The Unheard Cry for Meaning: Psychotherapy and Humanism. He lives in Vienna.
