Published in journal "Psychology and Psychotechnics", 2013-6 in rubric "Inner world", pages 529-535.

Resume: Understanding of one’s existence and the purpose of being are not identical concepts. The meaning of life can be also referred to one of the main issues in philosophy. The greatest part of philosophical schools and teachings address this question. Philosophy pays much attention to this issue and there are very different views on this issue. Some philosophers think that the meaning of life is the life itself. The others believe that one needs to live his life in order t understand the meaning of life. There are also those who assume that the meaning of life is the process of searching for this meaning.

Keywords: psychology, existential, meaning of life, value, spirituality, existentialism, logotherapy, philosophy, being, existence.
