LIMA NETO, Valdir Barbosa. The spirituality in logotherapy and existential analysis: the spiritual in a phenomenological and existential perspective. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.2, pp. 220-229. ISSN 1809-6867.

This paper aims to address the concept of spirit in Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, issuing the ontological vision and the philosophical anthropology developed by Viktor Emil Frankl on this concept, as well as the theoretical foundations and key thinkers who gave support to the author's ideas. The work aims to clarify and deepen the theory behind the spiritual or noetic dimension of man, understanding it as the cornerstone of a meaning-centered therapy. Focusing on the importance of understanding man's spirit within an anthropological view for the humanization of the psychotherapy and the psychological science, promoting a proper understanding of the Logotherapy's comprehension and methodology. The article will include a brief introduction about the historical context in which Frankl proposes a psychology school that covers the study of the spiritual person, then we will address the concept of spirit in Logotherapy's perspective, as well as its phenomenological and existential foundations. Then the question of the noetic dimension will be depeened, as we will cover the logotherapeutic approach and its main methodological foundations, clarifying important questions about the spiritual category, concluding the relevance of the concept of spirit for understanding the Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, as well as the humanization practice in psychotherapy and in psychology as a whole.
