The issue of the meaning of life is the essence of humanistic reflection on life. More and more often, the contemporary human beings begin to search for the meaning of their existence when they can no longer understand the events in their life, the world, and the processes which take place. In the context of the meaning of life, I refer in this work to the philosophical thoughts of Andrzej L. Zachariasz, Józef M. Bocheński and Michał Heller, among others, and to the philosophical concept of Józef Bańka.According to J. Bańka, one problem of the modern world is combining the concept of the way of life with the concept of the meaning of life. The word ”meaning” is a logical category. However, in practice, people refer to it from the axiological or ethical perspective – subjectively rather than objectively. They understand a meaningful life as a valuable life. In my work, I stress that J. Bańka’s proposal concerning the meaning of life and the way of life helps to organize discussion on this subject.
