Viktor Frankl - Mountain and Meaning

CLIMBING WITH FRANKL—A MEANINGFUL ROPE TEAM

Through climbing Viktor Frankl strengthened his inner resource, which he called »defiance of the mind«. Against his own fear of heights. Against the Nazis. For surviving four concentration camps.

In the mountains, the wold-famous psychiatrist Viktor Frankl was »just Viktor,« as his wife Elly put it. Not an exceptional alpinist on the side, but a true friend of the mountains, with heart and soul.

Michael Holzer and Klaus Haselböck trace Frankl by climbing the via ferratas named after him on the Rax and the Peilstein. Biographical references and superimpositions with the developmental area of the moutains show where you can become stronger, grow with challenges, and be closer to yourself. Elisabth Lukas, psychotherapist and one of the best-known students of Viktor Frankl, adds context and well-founded logotherapeutic principles to accompany these climbing tours.

An hommage to an exceptional alpinist who provided us with a way to talk about the meaning of climbing.
