Publisher's Summary

Upon his death in 1997, Viktor E. Frankl was lauded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time. The Unheard Cry for Meaning marked his return to the humanism that made Man's Search for Meaning a best seller around the world.

In these selected essays, written between 1947 and 1977, Dr. Frankl illustrates the vital importance of the human dimension in psychotherapy. Using a wide range of subjects—including sex, mortality, modern literature, competitive athletics, and philosophy—he raises a lone voice against the pseudo-humanism that has invaded popular psychology and psychoanalysis. By exploring mankind’s remarkable qualities, he brilliantly celebrates each individual’s unique potential, while preserving the invaluable traditions of both Freudian analysis and behaviorism.

What the Critics Say

"Emphasizes the importance of helping people to find meaning in their lives and thus to live at their fullest potential. And—needless to say—those who live fully have neither fear of life nor fear of death." (Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, MD)

    "Unexpected Benefits"
    What made the experience of listening to The Unheard Cry for Meaning the most enjoyable?

    I purchased this book because it had the word "humanism" in the title. But, the book is not about Humanism, the brand of morality that goes with atheism. It was about being-human and finding purpose, meaning, and happiness.

    THE TRULY STRANGE THING is that after reading/listening to this book to the end. I didn't feel the urge to drink alcohol anymore. THE URGE DISAPPEARED overnight and I was fixed. The book has nothing to do with urges or drinking, just happiness and meaning.

    This book shines a tiny light on those big questions "why am I here?", "what should i be doing?".


    If you’ve listened to books by Viktor E. Frankl before, how does this one compare?

    I believe his other books have slight religious overtones. This one does not.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction -though I wasn't looking for it. I was interested in humanistic morality, but found information on happiness, purpose, and meaning.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a collection of essays. Some of the chapters repeat information, and some chapters stray onto tangent topics. But the information is great.

    "Great topic but the voice sounds robotic"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator sounds very robotic... it's hard to finish this book.


    What didn’t you like about Bronson Pinchot’s performance?

    Is Bronson Pinchot human?.. sounded very robotic.
