Very thoughtful and interesting post. I just finished "Man's Search for Meaning" and some of the ideas are very uplifting. While I agree that "doing" and "experiencing" help in our search for meaning, I think Frankl's glorification of suffering is a bit of a stretch. Suffering in itself does not necessarily lead to finding meaning. Rather, I think where suffering surely helps is giving you a better perspective. After going through the worst suffering, we learn to value things better, and are wise enough to ignore, and therefore be undisturbed by, the small irritants and rigours of life. It makes us resilient and imbues in us a "can do" spirit, as in - "After what I have gone through, I can surely ride over any storm that I may encounter"

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher

Nilanshuk:

Thanks for the comment! I agree that suffering helps in giving one a "better perspective," as you say.

I do not believe, however, that Frankl glorifies suffering or suggests that suffering necessarily leads to meaning.

Instead, I believe Frankl offers a means of accepting suffering as a normal course of life and that those who can attach meaning to suffering can survive and grow beyond the suffering.
