Keywords: life perspectives; war discourse; internal transformations of personality.


The concept of life perspectives as a display of internal transformations of personality, the rethinking of values and the potential for further development in conjunction with the way in which war is represented in the discourse of the subject and society as a whole is analyzed in this article. We come to the conclusion that the perspective is how a person can see or consider the future from a particular position from a certain point.  In another language, the perspective can be interpreted as an individual way of dealing with the future and experiencing the future, according to what we propose, to consider the concept of life prospects as an intermediary, a tool for rethinking the experience of war, in terms of the availability of the following main components.  Along with the fact that the realization of life prospects can be understood through the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional level, this, including the unconscious process.  In shaping our life perspectives, we rely on a purely subjective experience of a person, which usually determines its election and model in the present and future, but the importance becomes the understanding that the formation of the subject is an endless, permanent process. A person who is infinitely constituted builds his subjectivity in interaction with others, which means that we cannot understand a person without a social context.
