The Forum presents the meaning-oriented existential philosophy and therapy developed by Dr. Viktor Frankl and expanded by logotherapists throughout the world.

The Meaning of
Our Institute's Logo

The BOAT, seen above, is the Greek symbol for wisdom.

The OIL LAMP (superimposed on the globe above) is the Hebrew symbol for eternity.

L-O-G-O-S is what you are really seeing superimposed on the globe above.  Not a boat.  Not an oil lamp.  LOGOS.  This constitutes the international symbol for the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy.  The globe is included because the Viktor Frankl Institute is the parent organization of Logotherapy Institutes and Study Groups in 22 countries on 6 continents.  

“In the beginning was the Word [Logos], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1 (“Logos” is the Greek word for “word.”)

LOGOS=Word=meaning, meant, intended, wisdom.  What was meant or intended for your life?  In what do you find meaning?

Meaning brings together that which should come together in life.  Viktor Frankl defined meaning as truth, beauty, goodness, love, rightness, and God.
