PROMPT QUOTATIONS
“Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked” (Frankl, p. 109). Discuss the significance of this statement.
“Live as if you were living for the second time and had acted as wrongly the first time as you are now about to act” (Frankl, p. 109, 150). What is your understanding of this “categorical imperative” of Frankl?
“At any moment, man must decide, for better or for worse, what will be the monument of his existence” (Frankl, p. 121).Do you agree (why/ why not)?
“What is demanded of man is not, as some existential philosophers teach, to endure the meaninglessness of life, but rather to bear his incapacity to grasp its unconditional meaningfulness in rational terms” (Frankl, p. 118). What does this mean, and how is it representative of Frankl’s logotherapy?
“The existential vacuum manifests itself mainly in a state of boredom. Now we can understand Schopenhauer when he said mankind was apparently doomed to vacillate eternally between the two extremes of distress and boredom” (Frankl, p. 106). Discuss.
“Emotion, which is suffering, ceases to be suffering as soon as we form a clear and precise picture of it” (Frankl, p. 74; from Spinoza’s Ethics). Do you agree (Why/ why not)?
A well-known research psychologist has pointed out that life in a concentration camp could be called a ‘provisional existence.’We can add to this by defining it as a ‘provisional existence of unknown limit'” (Frankl, p. 70).Discuss how this concept, in Frankl’s sense, can be applied to your own existence.
“He who has a why to live for can endure almost any how” (Frankl, p. 76; quotation from Nietzsche). What does this quotation mean to you?
Dostoevski said once, “There is only one thing that I dread: not to be worthy of my sufferings” (Frankl, p. 66). What does this mean?
“… people have enough to live by but nothing to live for; they have the means but no meaning” (Frankl, p. 140). Does this accurately represent American society, in your view?(How so?; Why/ why not?)
“I recommend that the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast” (Frankl, p. 132). Explain; comment.
