November 3, Perhaps for t I read this book for the first time during my senior year in high school.
Perhaps for this reason, Frankl's book affected me even more 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 faced.

This book, has to be one of the classics in my book. I was listening to an Earl Nightingale audio book and he mentioned this book in it. It sounded interesting so I decided to buy it.
Now I must say I'm a bit partial because I realized while reading it that we share similar views on a lot of things. And the way he ties everything together!
It's really good. I bought this book in pretty good condition for 1 cent which is great, but also kinda sad because it just goes to show how much intellectual genius is undervalued these days! But it's a great book and I highly recommend it for cerebral people. Paperback Verified Purchase. Rollo May's understanding on the pressures of being human in this world are extraordinary.
Man's search for himself.
Writing in the shadow of World War Two, and the recent ending of the Korean war with its fears of global destruction, May introduces the idea of a new anxiety that treatens the person from the outside. Because of this, he sees a greater emphasis put on the familial, and interpersonal relationships of life. His emphasis on the "morbid dependencey," on mother, the regressive giving up of one's responsible growing up into maturity is quite profound.
Also the way May describes the loneliness, anxiety, guilt, and purposelessness of modern man hits the mark of the 21st century's post-modern environment. He writes as one who is in the midst of his cultural commentary. Rollo May has given us a masterpiece on understanding the predicament that so many people find themselves in: May has never disappointed. He always brings the broadest context into play as he illuminates any human issue; cogently and carefully explaining his concepts with examples from his own and clients experience.
He never plies you with information for its own sake or recipes for problem solving.
Instead he helps us to build understanding of our greater milieu.. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I liked this book some much, It uncover the a lot things regarding our behavior. I was amazed to find out that as human being we fight for our freedom when someone take even shadowing our identity is not acceptable. I have read history books and royal families conflicts and fight about their freedom. I really enjoyed this psychological study on man's development as a thinking individual.
The examples used from written works and historical figures were very helpful in clarifying some of the points made.
At times I questioned whether I agreed with what was being said, but it very much agree with the final conclusion; definitely worth the read.A human being is not empty in a static sense.
