About

Summary

In Work, Love, Suffering, and Death: A Jewish/Psychological Perspective through Logotherapy, Rabbi Reuven P. Bulka offers a detailed comparison of Judaism and psychology on a number of key issues, demonstrating that when taken together, two fields can offer deeper insights into each other and a greater understanding of life's meaning and purpose. Rabbi Bulka bases his observations on Dr. Viktor Frankl's system of thought and practice known as Logotherapy. Popularly described as healing through meaning, Logotherapy concerns itself with all the dimensions of human existence and focuses on meaning as the central motif of life.
As a respected Judaic scholar and author, Rabbi Bulka has the experience and knowledge to take a careful look at how these two disciplines approach the issues of work, love, suffering, and death. Juxtaposing talmudic wisdom with psychological viewpoints, Rabbi Bulka examines such topics as aging and facing one's mortality, the correlation between employment and a sense of purpose in one's life, the vast tragedy and horrifying inhumanity of the Holocaust, and the hasidic approach to life.
