Victor Frankl: Suffering and Meaning

Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. In his book - Man’s Search For Meaning, he writes about the psychology of the prisoners in the Holocaust concentration camps. I very recently read a passage on suffering (and what meaning people can derive from it) in Frankl’s amazing book. Perseverance in the face of suffering is a subject I have given significant thought to, and Frankl eloquently summarises some of the most important aspects of suffering and its meaning in life.
