DUTRA, Elza. Thinking about suicide under the phenomenolocial hermeneutics: some considerations. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp. 152-157. ISSN 1809-6867.

This work aims to develop some thoughts about suicide from the perspective of phenomenological-hermeneutics. The Heideggerian notions of being there, being in the world, anguish and death-to-be will guide the discussions started here. For that use the stories of six teenagers who attempted suicide, presented in our doctoral research. We intend, from the experience of these young people, achieve a deeper understanding of suicide, since the horizon considerations will have the concreteness of lived experience. Understanding the being-there, Dasein, as being an opening and, therefore, opportunities, death is presented as the ultimate existential possibility. In fact, death represents the most concrete possibility with which the man can count, as proposed by Heidegger. Death claims the finitude of life and existence. Above all, the only certainty is that you have in life. In this sense, we question whether the suicide could be thought of as a lack of sense of self and an impersonal way of dealing with anxiety, eliminating it. Despair would not support the finitude of existence? The questions represent an effort to think of suicide from a look that encompasses the existential dimension that characterizes Dasein in its search for meaning as being in the world. We hope thus to contribute to building a look devoid of labels and categorizations, as historically and scientifically suicide has been discussed.
