Breve biografia
Victor E. Frankl was born in Vienna, Austria. He studied medicine at the University of Vienna and later specialized in neurology and psychiatry. His early work was influenced by his contacts with Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler, although he would later diverge from their teachings. After surviving three years in Nazi concentration camps during World War II, Dr. Frankl returned to Vienna and wrote more than 30 books. He married for the second time to Eleonore Katharina Schwindt (his first wife Tilly Grosser was killed in Bergen-Belsen) and the couple had a daughter. In 1948, he earned a Ph.D. in philosophy with a dissertation on the relationship between psychology and religion. In 1955, he was awarded a professorship of neurology and psychiatry at the University of Vienna, and a visiting professorship at Harvard University. He lectured and taught seminars in many countries around the world.

Solo i consumatori della cultura - scrisse Gabriel Marcel nella prefazione all'edizione francese - potrebbero scambiare questo libro per un ulteriore e ormai tardiva testimonianza sui campi di concentramento. C' é molto di più: avendo vissuto personalmente l'estrema abiezione dei Lager, l'autore insegna che se vivere é sofferenza, sopravvivere é trovare il senso di questa sofferenza, E' questa l'esperienza che lo condusse alla scoperta della logoterapia, il trattamento psicoterapeutico che l'ha reso famoso in tutto il mondo. Di una facilità narrativa quasi insospettabile in uno psichiatra, il libro é stato tradotto in tutto il mondo ed é stato dichiarato per quattro volte libro dell'anno dalle università degli Stati Uniti.… (altro)
