Professor Sadigh's Work Published in The World's Leading Peer-reviewed Scholarly Journal on Logotherapy

Cedar Crest College professor of psychology Micah Sadigh, Ph.D., has recently published a new book, Existential Journey: Viktor Frankl and Leo Tolstoy on Suffering, Death, and the Search for Meaning, through the Wyndham-Hal Academic Press. His book also received a review from the International Forum for Logotherapy: Journal of Search for Meaning, Vol. 6. Pp. 114-115.

“The writing of this book was an arduous task, but also a very meaningful one.” Sadigh said.
Sadigh’s work as a Franklian scholar compelled him to look further into the aspects of Franklian psychology. In his research he read many of the personal writings and books of Leo Tolstoy. He parallels Viktor Frankl’s idea of logotherapy with Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilych. Logotherapy is the idea that searching for meaning in life is in human nature.
The International Forum for Logotherapy is the world’s leading peer-reviewed scholarly journal on logotherapy. It is published by the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy. The Forum presents current work, which has expanded on the meaning-oriented existential philosophy and therapy developed by Dr. Viktor Frankl.

The Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy also awarded Sadigh with a Diplomate status in Franklian Psychology back in 2007. The Institute is actively involved in promoting the theoretical and empirical contribution of Franklian Psychology.

“The essence of the book is captured in our unabating search for meaning, which, I believe, is the ultimate vehicle by which we overcome suffering,” commented Sadigh. “I am pleased that the book has received positive reviews by respected scholars. In the end, I feel that Existential Journey fulfilled a sense of meaning in my life. I can only hope that it will, in some way, touch others and guide them in their search for meaning.”
