RIBEIRO, Jorge Ponciano. Environmentality, Co-existence and Sustainability: A Gestalt in Motion. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.spe, pp. 896-914. ISSN 1808-4281.

The article aims to propose and discuss the notion of environmentality, placing it in dialogue with the notions of sustainability and co-existence, aiming to promote discussions in the Gestalt Therapy field about our ethical and existential implications with Planet Earth. Environmentality is a non-existent term in the dictionary which is here proposed as a derivation of the word environment to, together with animality and rationality, constitute the definition of the structure of our human essence. Animal-rational, the human being has often been defined in an inadequate way, for he lacks the third existential: environmentality, which I am constituting and defining from the modes of existence that constitute the human experience of being a person. Environmentality is a dimension of the human essence, through which we are co-constituents of the universe, we are consubstantial founding parts of a totality through which everything changes, everything is connected to everything. Considering the notion of Field organism / environment field as a central construct in the approach, the development of the notion of environmentality can contribute to broaden the scope of the gestaltic perspective towards discussions that more effectively encompass people's relationships with the environment, highlighting their implication for the sustainability of the planet.
