Title
On the Place of Religion in the Thought of Viktor Frankl.
Abstract

As a response to the deficiencies he finds in the psychoanalytic view of man, Frankl proposes an existential analysis focusing on the spiritual dimensions in man - a spiritual dimension which he describes in terms of freedom, responsibility, and will-to-meaning. Within this spiritual dimension are "traces of transcendence" which seem to reveal a religiosity in man that is inherent yet often repressed. While the practice of logotherapy, which is predicated on the existential analysis, is closely correlated with religion, it does not specifically engage the religious dimension - perhaps because it puts this dimension outside the pale of human experience.
