Frankl is best known for his work on logotherapy, a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the search for meaning in life as a means of overcoming suffering and finding fulfillment.


Born in Vienna, Austria in 1905, and he studied medicine and psychology at the University of Vienna. He later specialized in neurology and psychiatry, and he began practicing as a therapist in the 1930s.

Frankl’s most famous work, “Man’s Search for Meaning,” is a memoir of his experiences in the Holocaust and a discussion of his theories on logotherapy. In the book, Frankl describes his experiences in the concentration camps and his observations of the prisoners around him. He observed that those who were able to find meaning and purpose in their suffering were more likely to survive and recover from their experiences.

Numerous others have been motivated by his beliefs about the value of meaning and purpose in life to achieve fulfillment in their own lives, endure pain, and triumph over adversity.


Frankl’s impact extends beyond psychology; his theories have been applied in a variety of contexts, such as business, education, and politics. His writings have inspired many people to look for meaning and purpose in their own lives as well as to use their skills and knowledge to make the world a better place.
