IBNA- A new Persian translation of best-selling book ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by prominent Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl based on his experiences in various Nazi concentration camps has been published.
Describing Viktor Frankl’s psychotherapeutic method, which involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positive about, and then immersively imagining that outcome, the book has been translated into Persian by Maryam Hossein-Nejad. Sang (Stone) Publishing in Tehran has released the book in 144 pages.
The ideas and works of Frankl in the form of logotherapy are considered as a reference and a well-known method in psychotherapy. In his work, Frankl, a psychotherapist wants to figure out how to arise the feeling of responsibility about ‘something’ in the patient, even in his worst conditions. He believes that trying to find meaning in life is a genuine and fundamental force, and man can live for his ideas and values.
Frankl's most famous work, ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ is a story of captivity that leads to the discovery of logotherapy. He tries to change people’s views by talking about his own experiences of living in Auschwitz and Dachau concentration camp.
He believes there is meaning in every misfortune, and that the world is full of meanings and signs which can only be grasped through a different outlook, and that every event in life carries a message which can be used to meet one’s wants and wishes.
The significance of reading Frankl's works, and especially of the ‘Man’s Search for Meaning" appears in finding the right meaning of life, the meaning which has come to man from the past to today.
