Apropiación del sufrimiento y búsqueda de sentido

By Iván Alfonso Pinedo Cantillo


This article covers one of the most important anthropological insights into thinking Viktor Frankl and Karl Jaspers: limit situations which generate confusion and anguish, and the chan- ces of finding meaning in suffering. These ex- treme situations confront the person with his particular world generating a host of existential questions that lead to skepticism and empty nonsense to not seeing behind them no posi- tivity for life. However, in suffering every indi- vidual can truly conquer their existence to find a positive way beyond the oppressive feelings that accompany these experiences. Thus limit situations, with its paradoxical nature, stimula- tes original processes of struggle and choice of individual destiny amid a hostile, confusing and often incomprehensible world
