In the article 'The change a way of life' - with reference to hermeneutic ideas of philosophy I present a hermeneutic conceptions of Gadamer's, Ricoeur's and the late Wittgenstein's from a therapeutic perspective. I point out that terms such as: the understanding conditions, changing a way of life and being in the world, plays the fundamental role in the hermeneutic conceptions. Ricoeur as well as Wittgenstein, analising these terms from language perspective, schow us, that the philosophical thinking suppouse to lead to expansion of man's self-consciousness and to understending the different forms of life. From that angle that idea of philosophy could be understanded as a kind of efford tend towards to change our looking at things, providing the subject to a kind of transformation. This process can be recognized as therapeutical because it force us to schake a many of our opinions, hidden prejudices, beliefs about ourselfs and about the world, which are treated as a background of our daily life. In connection with that I analyze the similarities between Ricoeur's and Wittgenstein's projects on one hand, and the Freud's psychoanalysis on the other.
