The Rediscovery of the Human: Psychological Writings of Viktor E. Frankl on the Human in the Image of the Divine

Front Cover
Hybrid Publishers, Nov 18, 2020 - 174 pages

Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning sold over 10 million copies and was translated into over 30 languages and was deemed by a survey of the Library of Congress one of "the ten most influential books in America". This volume introduces and presents translations of a number of important but less well-known writings by Viktor Frankl, translated from the original German, in which he forthrightly relates psychology to religious concepts. These cast a strong, new light on the generally received understanding of Frankl's contribution to psychology - "logotherapy" - and its relationship to the soul and universal ethics.

About the author (2020)

Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen, son of a former Governor-General of Australia, Sir Zelman Cowen OBM, has a dual background in secular and religious studies.

Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl is famous for his celebrated 1946 memoir Man's Search for Meaning - an examination on what the gruesome experience of Auschwitz taught him about the primary purpose of life: the quest for meaning, which sustained those who survived, and is a vital tool in psychological practice.
