Both men were Jewish physicians who lived and practiced medicine in Vienna Austrian in the period between the World Wars. Both specialized in the treatment of mental (psychiatric) disorders. Both were intellectually gifted men, who became brave advocates for their deeply held values and beliefs. They knew one another. Yet, they were separated by two generations, and even more by their philosophical assumptions. Their very different assumptions about the nature and response capacities of human beings (and their subsequent understanding of the meaning of human life) took them, their therapies, and their cultural legacies in very different – often opposing – directions ...When trying to understand and provide therapy for human beings, we do not so much need a science of molecules or machines, but rather, a science of persons.

For a long time men and women have been spoken of, in the social sciences and in psychiatry, as if they were merely instinctual animals or mindless automatons, subject to all kinds of deterministic “mechanisms.” This manuscript concentrates on those aspects of Frankl’s thought that counteract this reductionistic tendency – by restoring to men and women an awareness of their innate potential for freedom, responsibility, and dignity.- From the Preface
