>I have a book here you should all read... "Man's Search for Meaning: an
>introduction to logotherapy" by Viktor E. Frankl. According to Frankl,
>"logo" = "meaning"[1], and so logotherapy is a psychiatric discipline
>dealing with "The Will to Meaning". Absolutely amazing book. It's
>original title was "From death camp to Existentialism", and the new
>addition at the back, which actually describes the therapy used on real
>patients is very convincing.
>Frankl maintains that many of the problems in our society stem from our
>*fustrated* Will to Meaning, and that the way to solve these problems is
>to find *meaning* in the suffering that surrounds us. His major point
>is a quotation from Nietzsche: "He who has a <I>why</I> to live for can
>bear with almost any <I>how</I>".
>I'm sure Brodie is a big fan of Frankl. Logotherapy fits into the level
>three framework so well!

My oldest and dearest buddy from high school sent me a copy of Frankl a
couple of years ago for a birthday present. He thought it was excellent and
I agree!
