Rate this:
Frankl examines the role of moral concepts in the life of societies and points to the interaction between neurotic and psychotic disturbances in individuals and the pathologies which periodically overwhelm societies. moral values in the civilisation of the West and an upsurge of antisocial, destructive behaviour. When the moral directives upheld by a culture cease to be convincing, anti-moral attitudes of defiance will arise and an increasing number of people turn to crime, violence and murder, and an unrestrained self-interest and greed, with a profound weakening of social conscience, will dominate the fabric of societies.
