AQUINO, Thiago Antonio Avellar de. Analysis of Viktor Frankl's narrative on the experience of prisoners in concentration camps. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp. 206-215. ISSN 1809-6867.

The aim of this paper was to identify the lexical structure more significant in the work of Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning. The text corpus was analyzed by the software ALCESTE (Lexical analysis by context of a set of text segments), a computational method that aims to decompose a text in order to obtain the most significant structures. The meanings found were divided into three classes subdivided into two axes: Facticity and Psycho-existential Positioning of Prisoners. By this analysis it was possible to identify the most typical words used by Frankl in his narrative about the experience of the prisoner in a concentration camp. The results were discussed based on human rights and logotherapy and existential analysis.
