Logotherapy is not satisfied with reconditioning but opens the dimension of the very humanness of man and draws upon the resources which are available in the humanitas of the homo patiens. (The will to meaning Frankl 1988:116)
Logotherapy focuses on the meaning of human existence as well as on man’s search for such meaning (Man’s search for Meaning Frankl 2008:104)
The 3 Pillars (existential analysis) of Logotherapy are: 1. Freedom of Will, 2. Will to Meaning, 3. Meaning in life.
The word “logos” is a Greek word which also denotes “meaning”. The word “therapy” originates from the Greek word ”therapia” which literally means ”service”. Thus, Logotherapy is a therapy through which one can be helped to find meaning – the meaning of one’s own life as many people feel that their lives are void of any meaning.
