Trotzdem ja zum Leben sagen Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager

We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being uestioned by life daily and hourly Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation but in right action and in right conduct Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individualWhen Man's Search for Meaning was first published in 1959 it was hailed by Carl Rogers as one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty year. 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 a camp in person is a deeply haunting and disturbing experience Perhaps for this reason Frankl s book affected me even deeply than it otherwise might have The book is divided into two parts The first section recounts in vivid detail Frankl s horrifying experiences as a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp Frankl a former psychiatrist also describes his observations of other prisoners and what he felt to be the main way in which people tried to cope with the insurmountable obstacles they faced He found that those who could find meaning or purpose in their suffering were the ones who also seemed better able to find the strength to go on As I recall Frankl personally found his purpose in the hope of someday being able to see his wife again a hope that was strong enough to get him through the daily horrors he facedThe second half of this book is devoted to the therapy he developed based on the search for meaning which he calls logotherapy The basic premise is that those who can find meaning in their suffering are better able to cope with what would otherwise be a struggle too hard to bear As one who majored in psychology I found this section as fascinating as the firstI have read this book at least three times now and it is one of the few books I can say truly changed my life I am ever grateful that I have the wisdom of this book to fall back upon when needed Several years ago at a very young age in my 20s I became ill with a disease that left me bedridden and barely able to speak above a whisper Now 36 I am still bedridden and fighting the same battle It is Frankl s reminder to find meaning and purpose in suffering which I found in the love of my fianc and my hope of recovery that has helped me to get through each difficult day As Frankl tells us Everything can be taken from a man but one thing the last of the human freedoms to choose one s attitude in any given set of circumstances to choose one s own wayI highly recommend this book

Remarkable perspective on the psychology of survival In these inspired pages he asserts that the the will to meaning is the basic motivation for human life This simple and yet profound statement became the basis of his psychological theory logotherapy and forever changed the way we understand our humanity in the face of suffering As Nietzsche put it He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how Frankl's seminal work offers us all an avenue to greater meaning and purpose in our own lives a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the act of livi. 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 them or not He continues in the second half of this book with a discussion of his approach to psychiatry called logotherapy based on the belief that each person needs to find something in his or her life something particular and personal to them to give their life meaning We need to look outside ourselves There is nothing in the world I venture to say that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions as the knowledge that there is meaning in one s life There is much wisdom in the words of Nietzsche He who has a why to live for can bear almost any howThe first half of the book is completely absorbing fascinating reading When I tried to read the second academic part of it years ago I floundered I don t think I ever got through to the end But I stuck with it this time and found it truly rewardingThe second part did sometimes challenge my brain cells with concepts like thisI never tire of saying that the only really transitory aspects of life are the potentialities but as soon as they are actualized they are rendered realities at that very moment they are saved and delivered into the past wherein they are rescued and preserved from transitoriness For in the past nothing is irretrievably lost but everything is irrevocably storedI had to read that one two or three times before I felt like I really grasped what Frankl was saying And this oneLive as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act nowI assume it s to help give us motivation to avoid making a wrong choice by thinking through the likely conseuences of what we are about to do But there are so many nuggets of wisdom in this short volume A few things that really impacted meWe had to learn ourselves and further we had to teach the despairing men that it did not matter what we expected from life but rather what life expected from usOne should not search for an abstract meaning of life Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment Therein he cannot be replaced nor can his life be repeatedIt is one of the basic tenets of logotherapy that man s main concern is not to gain pleasure or to avoid pain but rather to see a meaning in his life In accepting this challenge to suffer bravely life has a meaning up to the last moment and it retains this meaning literally to the endMan does not simply exist but always decides what his existence will be what he will become in the next moment By the same token every human being has the freedom to change at any instantInspiring words inspiring lifeBonus material Here is an interview with Viktor Frankl when he was 90 years old He died just a couple of years later
