Spiritual commentary on discerning and discovering ultimate, personal meaning in any context of life. Based upon the psychotherapeutic ideas of Victor Frankl contained in his masterful work, "Man's Search for Meaning."
Does Life Have Meaning in a Concentration Camp?
In this article, Dennis presents the very basic ideas of Viktor Frankl's "Logotherapy", a school of existential psychotherapy that deals with man's "will to meaning." The reader is challenged to ask themselves, "If I were in a concentration camp, what would keep me from committing suicide?" What would be one's reason to go on living? Finding the answer will require the sincere seeker to plumb the depths of the meaning of life for a very personal answer to the riddle of existence. The idea is that one must have a sufficient, personal answer to life's meaning that will survive even the worst of life's circumstances.
