CARNEIRO, Cláudia  e  ABRITTA, Stella. Forms of being: the search for life’s meaning. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.2, pp. 190-194. ISSN 1809-6867.

The authors reflect about the search for life’s meaning based upon the creations and forms of being, with which man represents his need to guarantee survival and transcendence. If, in the beginning, man seemed to deal with the question of survival with simpler instruments, such as food, shelter and brood, today, despite having all the resources at his disposal, he comes up against a crisis of values in his pursuit for meanings which with he could provide to life and existence. The human journey in the construction of this meaning goes through the invention of beauty, art, that which is sacred and daydreaming.Calling upon anthropological facts and creations in literature and art, the authors discuss about contemporarity, existential void and the human expression forms to resignify existence.

Palavras-chave : Life meaning; Humanism; Gestalt-therapy; Psychotherapy; Existential void.
