Viktor Frankl:

Asumir lo efímero de la existencia

En la célebre conferencia recogida en este volumen, pronunciada en 1984 en Dornbirn (Austria), el lector se enfrenta a algunos de los grandes interrogantes que todo ser humano se ha hecho alguna vez: el sentido de nuestra vida, cómo encajar el dolor, por qué ayudar (o no) a nuestros semejantes, el transcurso de la vida y el envejecimiento y, sobre todo, cómo plantar cara a nuestro inevitable final.
    Este breve texto inédito muestra el costado más humano de Viktor Frankl y nos invita a ocuparnos de la muerte como un horizonte que, lejos de paralizarnos, ha de servir para hacer crecer nuestras posibilidades de ser.




Viktor Frankl:

The Will to Meaning (Russian)

Воля к смыслу:
Это безусловно один из важнейших трудов Виктора Франкла, в котором просто и доступно описаны основы и способы применения логотерапии.
Книга написана таким легким языком, что ее с удовольствием будут рекомендовать психологи и психотерапевты своим клиентам.
