Trotzdem ja zum Leben sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das

Поколения читатели откриват вдъхновение и смелост в малката книжка на Виктор Франкъл, който описва живота си в нацистките концентрационни лагери и научените там уроци за духовно оцеляване Въпреки годините на страдание в лагерите на смъртта, където загиват всичките му близки – майка му, баща му, брат му и бременната му съпруга, – Виктор Франкъл не престава да вярва, че животът има смисъл Дори и в найужасните обстоятелства, когато сме изгубили всичко, когато страдаме от глад и студ и сме подложени на нечовешко отношение, дори тогава вътрешната сила на човека може да го издигне над външната му участ, твърди Франкъл Защото на човека може да се отнеме всичко, освен едно: последната човешка свобода да избере своето отношение при всякакви обстоятелства, да избере свой собствен път Лагерниците са обикновени хора, но поне някои от тях, избирайки да бъдат достойни за своите страдания, доказват, че човек може да намери смисъл дори в безнадеждна ситуация Да превърне личната трагедия в триумф, а страданието си – в достижение с общочовешки характер Trotzdem ja zum Leben sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager

    I read this book for the first time during my senior year in high school. The year prior, I had gone to Germany for spring break with some fellow classmates. During the trip, we spent a day visiting a former WWII concentration camp in Dachau. As one might expect, this visit had a profound effect on me. I had of course read and knew about the atrocities that occurred under the Nazi regime, but to actually see the ga

    After I read this book, which I finished many, many years ago, I had become self-critical of any future endeavours which would take up a lot of my time. I would ask myself is this or will this be meaningful to me?, and if the answer was no, I wouldn't do it. It was this book that influenced me to consciously live as meaningful a life as possible, to place a great value on the journey and not just the destination, whil

    How is it possible to write dispassionately of life in a concentration camp in such a way as to engender great feeling in the reader? This is how Frankl dealt with his experience of those terrible years. The dispassionate writing makes the horrors of the camp extremely distressing, more so than writing that is more emotionally involved. It is almost reportage. The first half of the book is equal in its telling to

    The original part one was the strongest I think because the rest started to go into the typical psychobabble inherent to books trying to contribute to the academic side of psychology or psychiatry but the first part really grounded the idea of giving meaning to one existence into personal experience and I found it very poignant about the mental state of people in very stressful and hopeless situations. It's a very empowerin

    What is it that makes life worth living? Is it the pursuit of happiness? Attaining success? As human beings living in a vast and endless universe (or multiverse for that matter), what are we actually living for? I, for one, cannot answer those particular questions for you but know that I am also one of those who is searching for answers, trying to look for ways to make sense out of life, the numerous paths we've all trodden as

    For most of the book, I felt as dumbfounded as I would have been if I were browsing through a psychiatric journal. Filled with references and technical terms and statistics, it was mostly a book-long affirmation of the then innovative technique called 'logo-therapy'. I do not understand how this book is still relevant and found in most popular book stores. It might have been that the book was popular in the sixties and seventies

    This is a short but extremely intense book, first published in 1946. It begins with the author's experiences in four (!!) different German concentration camps in WWII, including Auschwitz, and how he coped with those experiences -- and saw others cope with

    Trotzdem Ja zum Leben sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager = Man's Search for Meaning; an introduction to logotherapy, Viktor E. Frankl
    Man's Search for Meaning is a 1946 book by Viktor Frankl chronicling his experiences as an Auschwitz concentration camp inmate during World War II, and describing his psychotherapeutic method, which involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positively about, and then immersiv

    This book stands out as one of the most helpful tools I've found in my life-long search for the way to live and be useful to others despite depression. As opposed to Freud, who believed that the primary drive in man, the most urgent motivation, was pleasure, Frankl believes that it is meaning. Now meaning for Frankl is not something abstract and airy and noble but rather something very concrete and specific to your life - what is the task

    After the Book of Mormon, this would be my second recommendation to anyone looking for purpose in life.

    Here's a poignant excerpt from one of my favorite parts of the book when Frankl has been in Auschwitz and other camps for several years and doesn't know the war is only weeks away from ending. He had decided to escape his camp near Dachau with a friend and was visiting some of his patients for the last time.
