One Humanity

Calls for Peace

An essential idea in Viktor Frankl’s philosophy is that of one humanity: humanity only begins where the differences between people and groups end. In times of war, knowing this is more important than ever. We need voices like Viktor Frankl’s that make passionate calls for a fight for peace. His appeals—three texts written between 1949 and 1969, accompanied by further contributions—not only give hope for an early end to the war, but also provide a valuable incentive to rediscover the work of the Austrian psychologist.

»Frankl’s legacy is highly topical because it deals with internal and external peace, the service to a purpose, the fulfillment of a task, the commitment to an idea and with giving people the ability to find their own meaning.«
XING Insider

»A valuable collection of Fankl’s widespread appeals for peace has been gathered in a new book on the occasion of the war in Ukraine—supplemented by contributions from contemporary authors who explain his writings.«
Die Furche

»His appeals to psychology and politics are reissued in this volume and read like they were written specifically for our time.«

»In times of war, Viktor Fankl’s philosophy is more important than ever for peace and for the solidarity among all of humankind.«
