Description

Man’s Search for Meaning was first published in 1946. Victor Frankl was a leading psychologist in Vienna when he was arrested for being a Jew during the Nazi regime. He survived holocaust and used his experiences to write this book. He propounded the theory that it is Man’s constant search for meaning that allows him to survive even the most brutal, the most degrading situations in his life.

He said there are only two races in the world, the decent and indecent. They will maintain their innate beliefs, no matter which side they are on. The decent ones will try to help the fellow human beings and the indecent ones will be selfish and serve themselves at the cost to the others.

Frankl’s views were different from those of the leading psychologist of his times, Freud and Adler. His research was intensely personal and unique. His findings of human behaviour were based on the most extenuating circumstances that humans face. He suffered holocaust along with several other inmates and he observed their behaviour closely. He found that those with a capability to focus on love were the ones that survived. He based this observation on a long walk he was forced into by his captors. His companion spoke about his wife. This made Frankl think about his wife and the thought of her took his mind away from his current agony of being hit with rifle butts by his captors for dawdling.

The book has been listed as one of the 10 most influential books. It has a message of hope that has continued to inspire readers down the years.

  1. Horen gohain (Verified Purchase)

    The book is yet another victim of loud hype, presumably by people who don’t read more than 3 books in a lifetime. This is a decent work of non-fiction, but, unless you’re in school, there’s nothing so life-changing about it.

  2. Girish H (Verified Purchase)

    Thank God I read this. I consider this a must read for every 25+year olds. The older you are, the more you might appreciate the ideas. Part 1 is classic. Part 2 not all that inspiring as the first. It’s a small book.. do read it, irrespective of the price.. which anyways is minimal considering the material contained and you will change the way you currently look at life.

  3. srinivas Tanneru (Verified Purchase)

    The writer’s account of the Holocaust is horrific but the his tactics of staying alive through hope and describing the psychology behind it is fascinating. Some parts of the book had me lose interest due to the technical psych jargon/drawing up the reasoning with psych approach but overall it’s definitely strikes a chord.

    The book is pretty interesting , specially the account of the concentration camps or torture camps which i may call it. The experience of the author is indeed real , you can tell it from the words. The book makes you wonder , what the meaning of life is , as a prisoner or as an independent person. The book is a must read for all those people searching for meaning of life.
