Unsere aktuelle Situation ist in keinster Weise vergleichbar mit damals. In Frankls damaliger Situation ging es um umfassende Verlusterfahrungen. Phase: Ablauf des Lagerlebens Nach wenigen Tagen begann das Stadium der relativen Apathie, wo anfangs noch Ekel und wegschauen, dann zunehmendes Abstumpfen und hinschauen — egal was passierte — vorherrschte. Einzige Aufgabe war die pure Lebenserhaltung.

His interest in psychology surfaced early. For the final exam Matura in Gymnasium , he wrote a paper on the psychology of philosophical thinking. After graduation from Gymnasium in , he studied medicine at the University of Vienna. In practice he specialized in neurology and psychiatry, concentrating on the topics of depression and suicide. His early development was influenced by his contacts with Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler , although he would diverge from their teachings.

In , not a single Viennese student committed suicide. A promptly suffocated rebellion involving the Austrian social democrats and unionised factory workers, was supported by the Republikanischer Schutzbund "Republican Protection League" , in opposition to the increasing totalitarian encroachment of the fascist Austrian state.

Austro-fascism, having modeled itself after the pan-ethnic Italian Fascist state, shared its use of internment, total obedience to autocratic rule, initial absence of antisemitism and its similar prohibition and persecution of all proponents of parliamentary democracy, Social democracy , Socialism , Communism , and anarchism alike, as equal "dissidents" - to be arrested and interned.

It was within this climate in Vienna, and operating as a member of the ruling Fatherland Front, from to , that Frankl completed his residency in neurology and psychiatry at the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital in Vienna.

Here, he treated more than women who had suicidal tendencies. In , Frankl started working at the Rothschild Hospital , where he headed its neurological department. This hospital was the only one in Vienna to which Jews were still admitted. According to his account, it was when his skills in psychiatry were noticed by the Nazis, he was assigned to the psychiatric care ward in Block B IV, establishing a "psychohygiene" service.

It would be years before those in other countries would become fully aware of the conditions some of the vulnerable inside the Ghetto lived under. The Nazis hoped it would decisively regain air supremacy and reduce the effectiveness of Allied bombing of the Nazi armament industry. With the 2, men of the Kaufering camp, defying that order to single out anyone as had been intended, going on the hunger strike without any food.

Frankl recounts standing up from his bunk, before the hungry men, where he delivered to them the perspective of what little had been taken from them and how it could be restored, to not give up hope of their potential coming luck of assignment to a more favorable work outfit.

It was here he rose to the Kapo position of "senior block warden" and began writing his book anew, until 27 April , when the camp was liberated by American soldiers. After enduring the sufferings in these camps, Frankl concluded that even in the most absurd, painful, and dehumanized situation, life has a potential meaning and that, therefore, even suffering is meaningful. This conclusion served as a basis for his logotherapy and existential analysis , which Frankl had described before World War II.

He said, "What is to give light - must endure burning. He often said that even within the narrow boundaries of the concentration camps he found only two races of men to exist: decent ones and unprincipled ones.

These were to be found in all classes, ethnicities, and groups. He remained there until In he married his second wife Eleonore Katharina Schwindt.

They had one daughter, Gabriele, who went on to become a child psychologist. His dissertation, The Unconscious God , is an examination of the relation of psychology and religion. Religious recruitment and initial raising of authoritarianism[ edit ] In the s, Frankl began to recruit Methodist ministers and similar pastoral psychologists, to promote logotherapy amongst them.

He was survived by his wife Eleonore, one daughter, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Frankl was a survivor of Auschwitz. In the scholar and holocaust analyst Lawrence L. Frankl over the years would with these widely read statements and others, switch between the claim that logotherapy took shape in the camps to the claim that the camps merely were a testing ground of his already preconceived theories.

An uncovering of the matter would occur in with Frankl revealing on this controversy, though compounding another, stating "People think I came out of Auschwitz with a brand-new psychotherapy. This is not the case. Operating without any training as a surgeon, Frankl would voluntarily request of the Nazis to perform the experiments on those who had resisted, and once approved - published some of the details on his experiments, the methods of insertion of his chosen amphetamine drugs into the brains of these individuals, resulting in, at times, an alleged partial resuscitation, mainly in prior to his own internment at Theresienstadt ghetto in September, later in that year.

To him, existential neurosis is synonymous with a crisis of meaninglessness". It refers to a form of anxiety resulting from an awareness, in some people, of the emptiness of their lives once the working week is over. Freedom is only part of the story, and half of the truth. Freedom is but the negative aspect of the whole phenomenon whose positive aspect is responsibleness.

In fact, freedom is in danger of degenerating into mere arbitrariness, unless it is lived in terms of responsibleness.
