Viktor E. Frankl (1905-1997) was an Austrian neurologist and pyschiatrist, and a Holocaust survivor. He was the founder of logotherapy, which has come to be called the Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy (after Freuds psychoanalysis and Adlers individual psychology).
Dr. Frankls first article was published in 1924 in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis, and he went on to write twenty-seven books, which have been translated into virtually every major language in the world. The American edition of his book Mans Search for Meaning has sold millions of copies.
A professor of neurology and psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School and distinguished professor of logotherapy at the United States International University in San Diego, California, Dr. Frankl was also a visiting professor at Harvard, Southern Methodist, Stanford, and Duquesne universities, and received honorary doctorate degrees from twelve universities. He was president of Austrian Medical Society of Psychotherapy and an honorary member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. In 1985 he was awarded the Oskar Pfister Award by the American Psychiatric Association.
