Description

The late Dr. Viktor Frankl, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century and the author of the bestselling book, "Man's Search for Meaning," wrote over 50 years ago: "Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for." The gist of this book, "This Unbearable Boredom of Being," is that the most burning problems of today's America: crime, drugs, greed, ugly gender polarization, disintegration of family, decay in morals, racism, and so on, are the direct consequences of a crisis of meaning that has engulfed America. The author, Genrich Krasko, an acclaimed scientist and follower of Viktor Frankl, analyzes the causes of this existential crisis. Genrich Krasko identifies one powerful factor that plays an enormous and decisive role in exacerbating our crisis and virtually all our problems: the degradation of our educational system. He also discusses the roots of this degradation and a future, true, educational reform. However, what Genrich Krasko suggests is almost diametrically opposed to the measures that are being widely discussed (and implemented) today. "This Unbearable Boredom of Being" is an eye opener. It will also help you to envisage a new America, healthy and flourishing, a light unto the nations.
