Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on mans search for meaning by viktor frank Paper must be at least 1500 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Frankl was born in 1905 in Vienna. He was a student at the University of Vienna. Being a bright student, he was able to attain two doctorate degrees from the university. Upon capture, Frankl was detained for three years in Auschwitz among other camps. When he was set free, Frankl wrote the book, Man’s search for meaning. He introduces the psychotherapeutic method that he cultivated and lived by as a prisoner. This method involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positively about and then deeply imagining that outcome of it.
As a scientist, Frankl had many ideas that were mainly in theory until the breakout of World War II. During his time as a prisoner, he got to live out many of his ideas. The experiences he went through while in captivity enabled him to come up with the basis for a new school of psychotherapy. He named it Logotherapy that was in line with the psychoanalysis of Freud and Adler’s individual psychology. Logotherapy attempts to draw out a person from themselves and view their life from a broader perspective. On the other hand, psychoanalysis is about looking inwardly at oneself and identifying the cause of neurosis. It mainly focuses on what draws emotions in an individual, while Alderian psychology concerns itself withdrawing the desire of an individual to control others. After analyzing both schools of thought, Frankl concludes that the major motivational force in human beings is the will to draw meaning out of life.
The world is in need of hope. During times of adversity, people feel like they have lost control. Frankl is an inspirational figure in showing us an alternative to giving up. Even to the point of severe hardship, beyond the limits of inhumane treatment, he emerged an optimist. His perseverance during his captivity and the will to live should encourage every individual to keep on holding onto hope no matter the circumstances. During his captivity, he was able to witness the death of innocent infants, women, men, and children (Coutu, 2002). He lost many friends and acquaintances and experienced loneliness but still, he did not give up on life like many of his fellow prisoners.
According to Frankl, the future image of a prisoner determines how long he would survive or hang on to dear life. The intention of the work is to discover the daily life of average inmates.
