Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to introduce an introductory systematization of a pedagogical conception, developed from the Viktor Frankl’s thought, so that it can move towards a foundation of educational activity. Firstly, we present the anthropological, epistemological and axiological foundations of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, theory created by the Austrian author. Then, we discuss how these foundations can guide educational activity from the following topics: aims of education, role of the school, learning assumptions, teaching content, methods, teacher-student relationship. In short, the purpose of this pedagogical proposal is to support the person to develop an autonomous life, anchored in meaning and values, and to discover and carry out a meaningful life project that contributes to something in the world.
