Religion And Culture from the Author: Bernard J. F. Lonergan. While the framework of this book is Lonergan, the essays stand as original and constructive works in a number of fields and topics. The theme of the relation of religion to culture is addressed from four orientations: philosophy, theology, human science, and economics. The contributors include Stephen Toulmin, Frederick Crowe, S.J., Sebastian Moore, Walter Conn, and William Johnston, S.J. Topics covered include process thought, historical-mindedness, mysticism, religious truth and language, nuclear war, and economic transformation. Lonergan s monumental Insight (1957) and Method in Theology (1972) are substantial and powerful. The key to these and other works is method. Lonergan s thought rests on the subject s intelligent and responsible self-appropriation, grounded in creative and cooperative work from diverse disciplines. This volume demonstrates the richness and importance of the methodical collaboration called for by one of our century s greatest minds."

Meaning In Positive And Existential Psychology from the Author: Alexander Batthyany. This book is a first attempt to combine insights from the two perspectives with regard to the question of meaning by examining a collection of theoretical and empirical works. This volume therefore is destined to become an important addition to psychological literature: both from the viewpoint of the history of ideas (again this would be one of the first times that positive and existentialist psychologies meet) and from the viewpoint of theoretical and empirical research into the meaning concept in psychology.

The Doctor And The Soul from the Author: Viktor E Frankl. Recognising that the need for meaning in life is the primary facet in an individual's life as a result of his experiences in Nazi concentration camps led Viktor Frankl to develop his theory of logotherapy. Dr Frankl's revolutionary theory is outlined in The Doctor and the Soul, now republished for the first time in two decades. Man's search for meaning is the most human phenomenon of all and the frustration of that need causes neurosis, anxiety and despair. It becomes the psychiatrist's role to help a patient find meaning in their life. Doctor and the Soul looks at the meaning of individual lives, it is the psychotherapeutic technique that answers the patient's question: “Why do I go on living?” Logotherapy finds the possibility of concrete meaning in any life situation and offers a patient recovery by strengthening trust in the unconditional meaningfulness of life and the dignity of the individual.

Man S Search For Ultimate Meaning from the Author: Viktor E Frankl. Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.
