Alfried Längle - Towards a Meaningful Live. A Logotherapy Manual

Eine praktische Anleitung der Logotherapie

What do I live for? What gives meaning to my life? It is a fundamental need of human beings to find their individual meaning in life. This holds particularly true for times of crisis. Meaning, however, means something different to every one of us, and it can also change in the course of life. The search for meaning is thus a very personal issue, and each answer is unique. Alfred Längle explains the basic elements that help us to find our meaning in life. Step by step he guides the reader on his or her individual way. The book features many practical examples, instructions and exercises, and the texts invite the reader to reflect on his or her personal life. It is a practical guide and an easy-to-read introduction to the basic concepts of logotherapy and existential analysis.

Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - The vast lands of our mind

On our mental state in a crazy world

What is good for our mental wellbeing, from our baby years to old age? We live in times where mental illness and confusion are on the rise, our society is rapidly changing, and people are more and more stressed and overwhelmed. Only a few years ago, philosophers described this phenomenon as "a society of fatigue". Increasingly this fatigue seems to expand into fear and helplessness. The authors take readers on a journey through the wondrous world of our psyche. They answer questions that we have all encountered when our minds enter a state of emergency and they ask further questions in a world that's becoming crazier each day.

Georg Fraberger - How do I become me - Between body, heart and mind

Zwischen Körper, Verstand und Herz

We are taught to set ourselves targets. We train our body and function in accordance with social protocols. We try to be successful and a perfect partner in matters of the heart. But this balancing act is often not achieved. The body becomes tired and threatens to buckle under the stress, or we experience inner conflict. But who is in the right: body, heart or mind? How do I become me, and who am I? Our thoughts appear to be free, but in truth are tied to our body. Georg Fraberger, himself severely physically disabled from birth, illustrates how we can lead a balanced life through the harmonious connection of body, heart and mind.

Coverabbildung von 'Angst'

Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - Fear


Fear is a basic human emotion, but it shouldn’t rule a person’s life. Everyone feels fear at certain times. It is a primal feeling that can dominate our being. Nothing is as defining as mental anxiety. Fear paralyses us. Makes us ill. But it can also drive us to peak performance. Fear opens the gates of the human psyche for numerous mental disturbances: Panic, phobias and personal worries, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictions. What is the nature of fear? What function does it have? How can fear be utilised or overcome? Why do people seek out fear by watching horror films or by participating in extreme sports? In their new book, Georg Psota and Michael Horowitz provide answers to these questions and present a way out of fear.

Coverabbildung von 'Loving with Success'

Georg Fraberger - Loving with Success

How to become and remain a happy couple

A romantic relationship is an exchange, in which a person gives a part of themselves in order to become something bigger with another person. But managing this exchange isn't easy. Often there is inner resistance. Our mind may speak against love or our life partner, while our body disagrees and grows weak at the sight of the other. We might go soft in the knees or experience fear of loss. Love within a relationship can go off balance. But there are ways to experience love as a profound exchange, without strain or pressure and without obligation. Georg Fraberger analyses love and sexuality and reveals how we can develop a fulfilled partnership. He is also very candid in describing his own relationship to his wife and their path towards a stable marriage.
