Summary/Abstract: This thesis constitutes an attempt at a synthesis of issues concerning the presence of reflexivity in the process of adult development (individuation) from an interdisciplinary perspective (philosophy, psychology, pedagogy). I am interested in the phenomenon of reflexivity as a stimulus of individuation, i.e. the process of personal development that can be treated as learning through life, particularly in adulthood. The purpose of this article is to analyze the importance of reflection as well as its antinomy “non-reflexivity”, which is treated in this work as a positive phenomenon from a developmental perspective, as well as the relations in the field of reflections and emotions, in the subject and object order of the process of personal development.
