Man's Search for meaning is a profound book that reveals to us nurses the triumph in human beings' ability to overcome any circumstances. The book "Man's Search for Meaning" was written by Viennese psychiatrist, Dr. Viktor Frankl, who later became world renowned for having founded a new psychoanalytic paradigm of Logotherapy. Part I of this book, Dr. Frankl's interment imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps used his horrifying experiences to develop and support his theory of Logotherapy. His insightful account of the psychology of a concentration camp inmate notes that despite starvation, bitter cold, and overwhelming emotional suffering, some inmates were still able to maintain their values. He observed that prisoners coped with the experience by comforting others. And concluded those who gave away their last piece of bread survived the longest. Dr. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. "Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible." (Frankl, 2005, p 172). I highly recommend this book to all of you nurses, it is an easy read and very moving!!
