The Existentially Analytical Approach to Value of Life
LhotovŠ Marie
Concepts such as purpose, conscience, existence, being and life are associated with the existential psychotherapeutic approach in psychotherapy. At present it turns out that the existential approach is a valuable, effective psychotherapeutic paradigm based on rational, coherent and systematic methods, although the foundations of the existential orientation are not empirical but intuitive. The aim of the present text is to find especially in the theory of V. E. Frankl and A. Lšngle support for defining the value of human life and dignified being and with a particular casuistry demonstrate the conceptual framework in which the thought of this approach was therapeutically organized.
