This is believed to be the first logotherapy demonstration at a World Congress since Dr. Jerry Long presented one at World Congress VII in Kansas City in 1989. That session can be found at:

LogoTalk Radio #50: The Dr. Jerry Long Lecture Series Part 3 - Demonstration of Logotherapy
http://logotalkshownotes.blogspot.com/2013/02/50-dr-jerry-long-lecture-series-part-3.html


This demonstration includes a fictional portrayal of a United States Iraqi war veteran. It is no secret that the transition from combat back to civilian life is not easy. The suicide rate among veterans is twice that of the civilian population. More veterans have died by suicide than were killed in the Iraq war. The suicide rate of active duty military is about the same as the number killed by enemy action.

The Tango Yankee Project was started by Daniel Shaw to support the fight against veteran suicide. As the project grows, proceeds from the sale of Tango Yankee chips will be donated to vetted charities that work to prevent veteran suicide. The Tango Yankee chip is a way to say "Thank You" – or TY, "Tango Yankee," in the NATO radio phonetic alphabet. It can be given to a veteran to say "Thank You," and you can ask him or her to pass it on. The back of the chip states “What you do in this life matters.”

Daniel Shaw recently retired from active service with the United States Marine Corps where he served as an Infantry Unit Leader and held several weapons and tactics instructor positions. He is producer and co-host of the podcast Gunfighter Cast through which he provides informative defense based content. Since retiring from active duty, Mr. Shaw continues his career as Thunderbird Tactical’s Chief Instructor.

Mr. Shaw has kindly provided a discount on Tango Yankee chips for LogoTalk Radio listeners. You can order the chips at http://tangoyankeechip.com and use the code “logotalk10” at check-out. A simple thank you – a Tango Yankee – can go a long way.

#79: No Meaning Without Ultimate Meaning with Aryeh Siegel, Ph.D., Diplomate in Logotherapy



Format option:
.mp3


On Monday, March 9, 2015, Dr. Aryeh Siegel gave the following presentation to the First International Congress of Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy in Israel, held in Haifa. LogoTalk Radio thanks Dr. Siegel for giving his kind permission to share the address with you.

During graduate studies in the philosophy of logic and metaphysics at M.I.T., Dr. Siegel became disillusioned with the analytic philosopher's bias toward reductionism and materialism. With the guidance of Professor Huston Smith, he began to develop a philosophy of the esoteric unity of religions that he further refined while teaching the philosophy of religion and mysticism at The William Paterson College of New Jersey and also studying psychotherapy. Having settled in Israel for over 30 years, Dr. Siegel has taught philosophy there in assorted venues, but has lately focused more on practicing and sharing the teaching of the Kabbalist Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag, which emphasizes selfless love as the way to achieve attachment to the divine. Living in the Jerusalem area as the father of five, he is currently employed as a manager of computer projects in the Israeli institute for social security, as well as working independently as a logotherapy counselor.
