Viktor Frankl worked as a doctor in various Viennese hospitals before his time of great suffering in four different concentration camps began. Although he lost his entire family, at the end of the war he returned to Vienna where, in 1946, he wrote within a few days EIN PSYCHOLOGE ERLEBT DAS KONZENTRATIONSLAGER, a text that later, renamed TROTZDEM JA ZUM LEBEN SAGEN (MAN´S SEARCH FOR MEANING) became a worldwide bestseller.
Frankl was professor for neurology and psychiatry at the University of Vienna and professor for logotherapy at the US International University in San Diego, California. He was the founder of logotherapy, the "third Viennese school of psychotherapy".
THE DOCTOR AND THE SOUL in which Frankl evolves his central theses is one of his most important works, an emphatic appeal to demythologize psychotherapy and rehumanize medical care. The manuscript, already written in the 1930s, was first published in 1946 and last edited by the author in 1982.
