The Will to Meaning is a lecture that was delivered to a live audience in 1985. The question that underlies it is: What are the uniquely human dimensions? For Frankl, they include detachment, humor, self-transcendence, and especially, the will to meaning.
In this wide-ranging lecture, Frankl distinguishes his existential perspective on the human condition from that of psychiatric giants including Freud, Adler, Maslow, and Perls. He outlines how people can find meaning in their lives through their deeds, through love, and through helping others cope with their suffering.
Timely observations from a timeless thinker, he says: "Since Auschwitz we know what man is capable of. Since Hiroshima we know what is at stake," reminding us of the social imperative to extol human dignity.
This compelling lecture is appropriate for all listeners, professional and lay. Excellent industrial-grade, two-camera video with exceptionally clear audio.
