Purpose and Meaning

One should not search for an abstract meaning of life. Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it. (Man’s Search for Meaning)

This section explores the question of meaning making.  Starting with the work of Viktor Frankl, the Holocaust survivor and psychologist, this section seeks to explore ways in which all human beings are guided to find meaning and purpose.
