El hombre en busca de sentido

Viktor E. Frankl

El doctor Frankl, psiquiatra y escritor, suele preguntar a sus pacientes aquejados de múltiples padecimientos: «¿Por qué no se suicida usted?» Y muchas veces, de las respuestas extrae una orientación para la psicoterapia a aplicar: a éste, lo que le ata a la vida son los hijos; al otro, un talento, una habilidad sin explotar; a un tercero, quizás, sólo unos cuantos recuerdos que merece la pena rescatar del olvido. Tejer estas tenues hebras de vidas rotas en una urdimbre firme, coherente, significativa y responsable es el objeto con que se enfrenta la logoterapia. En esta obra, Viktor E. Frankl explica la experiencia que le llevó al descubrimiento de la logoterapia. Prisionero, durante mucho tiempo, en los desalmados campos de concentración, él mismo sintió en su propio ser lo que significaba una existencia desnuda. ¿Cómo pudo él que todo lo había perdido, que había visto destruir todo lo que valía la pena, que padeció hambre, frío, brutalidades sin fin, que tantas veces estuvo a punto del exterminio, cómo pudo aceptar que la vida fuera digna de vivirla? El psiquiatra que personalmente ha tenido que enfrentarse a tales rigores merece que se le escuche, pues nadie como él para juzgar nuestra condición humana sabia y compasivamente. Las palabras del doctor Frankl alcanzan un temple sorprendentemente esperanzador sobre la capacidad humana de trascender sus dificultades y descubrir la verdad conveniente y orientadora.

Charles Dickens is my fav I guess. Man's Search For Meaning... has Lin Manuel written a book yet?      fuente
Loved it. Really loved it.      fuente
I think this book is incredibly important.      fuente
Many, from Malcolm X's Autobiography 2 Man's Search for Meaning RT @VarunAmbrose what were books that caused a paradigm shift in ur thinking      fuente
Man’s Search for Meaning provides compelling examples of humanity’s perseverance through trying situations. This is another book that I’ve read dozens of times. It taught me that if you change the meaning, you change everything. Meaning equals emotion, and emotion equals life.      fuente
I know how easy this is to say and how hard it is to do. Check out one of my favorite books "Man's Search For Meaning." It helped me with this tremendously.      fuente
Both books are absolutely essential to me in order to keep my perspectives correct in a changing world.      fuente
Here is a list of books that I found particularly influential in my intellectual development.      fuente
@jennynirmala that book also changed my life.      fuente
A meditation on what the gruesome experience of Auschwitz taught the author about the primary purpose of life: the quest for meaning, which sustained those who survived.      fuente
One of my favorite books.      fuente
@nielsvantilborg Single most important book you can read: Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl      fuente
If you’re looking for a good book these days, read Viktor Frankl’s ‘Man’s Search For Meaning.’ Incredibly inspiring.      fuente
A hugely important book for me.      fuente
Five books that taught me about myself - Finding Flow: Happiness is absorption - Meditations: Reactions are a choice - Punished by Rewards: Only intrinsic motivation lasts - Man’s Search for Meaning: Fortune is finding a purpose - On the shortness of Life: Life is long enough      fuente
This book illustrates that it’s not our circumstances but the decisions we make that diminish or develop us. Nothing has any meaning but the meaning we choose to give it. We alone have that power.      fuente
Looks at how we find purpose by dedicating ourselves to a cause, learning to love and finding a meaning to our suffering.      fuente
Powerful, deep, etc. First half describes life inside Auschwitz. Second half has powerful succinctly-said insights into the universal struggle. There's a reason this book has sold a billion copies.      fuente
One of the best books I have ever read👍      fuente
@JealousTempo @ChadMhako @staffordmasie Great book      fuente
I’m at a loss for words here. Just read it. Don’t read it for the Holocaust. Or psychological theory. Read it because when you’re about halfway through you will realize your life is no longer the same. And next time you get a chance to whisper in the ear of someone about to kill himself, whisper words from this book.      fuente
If you can only read one book this year, read this one. It will change the way you think about life...      fuente
@amyjccuddy I first read Frankl's book in high school. I've read it four more times since then and learned many new things about myself, life, and the universe each time. Imagine someone asking you, "Amy, what is the meaning of your life?" It's a powerful question once you know his story.      fuente
The book I’ve probably gifted the most is Man's Search for Meaning, since I’m 16.      fuente
I’m asked all the time what books I suggest. These are the best of the best. Links to each book are here #marketing #entrepreneur      fuente
I’ve long been obsessed with Viktor Frankl’s MANS SEARCH FOR MEANING. I am in no way comparing covid-19 to the events covered in his book. However I do think the impact of this pandemic has isolated many of the elderly & essentially stripped them of their meaning. Catastrophic.      fuente
@davidthekick Victor Frankl says that it's not pain that's the problem but pain without meaning that = suffering, and that meaning (ie having a goal) can make pain endurable. I wonder if you've read his book, Man's Search for Meaning? It's one of my favorites (and a classic).      fuente
@WhiteClay9 Wonderful book. But very different.      fuente
Reading, “Man’s Search for Meaning.” I feel like this is one of those books everyone should read at some point. This paragraph in particular resonated with me.      fuente
@JohnDelightChou Excellent book.      fuente
Everyone should read this book. It’s wonderful. One of the great books ever written exists because of one of the worst times in human history. From suffering comes beauty. Enjoy The Hostilities My…      fuente
Today is an excellent day to read or reread Man's Search for Meaning, which is one of the greatest books ever written. I can't begin to tell you how much this book means to me and how much it changed my life and gave me courage when I needed it most.      fuente
From Man's Search for Meaning I interpreted that we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, and that having meaning in our life is essential.      fuente
What are some books that truly changed the way you perceive the world? Here are some of mine.      fuente
This book is surprisingly cheerful and upbeat. It's slim but packed with wisdom that I often come back to. I really recommend you read it. #HolocaustMemorialDay      fuente
@ram00759595 Solid book      fuente
1: Be Proactive Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl (cited in book) The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership by Jim Dethmer and Diana Chapman (esp. commitment #1: Responsibility) Lead Yourself First by Kethledge/Erwin Leadership & Self Deception by Arbinger Institute      fuente
His book was so inspiring.      fuente
Outlines methods to discover deep meaning and purpose in life.      fuente
@codyroyle I read it every couple of years or so. It’s a short - but incredibly powerful book      fuente
An extraordinary book. About great evil and survival. About greater hope and humanity.      fuente
If I were to take the meaning of Man's Search for Meaning, and turn it into an equation, it would be despair equals suffering minus meaning.      fuente
@alokgoyal1971 @U_pasana one of my favorite books 🙌      fuente
If people are doing a bit of soul searching, hands down I give them this book.      fuente
His basic point is no matter the conditions we surround ourselves in, we can author our life.      fuente
