Summary/Abstract: The topic discussed in this article makes a reason for further research and study over the auto-creation. The analysis over a creative transformation in the course of life leads to a crystallisation of individual processes of autocreation. The vision of the world and ourselves evolves in the course of life which has a crucial connection with a crystallising and creative attitude and a variable picture of works, which are constantly created from the start in a new perspective born from creator’s experience and feelings. Consequently, a piece of work composes, on the one hand, creator’s individuality, on the other hand it exceeds him or her into the world, and finally it makes a new creator. The complexity of reflexions taken up within auto-creation combines an existential and axiological perspective inducing a subject to make symbolic signposts to follow from an autobiographical perspective. An autobiographical narrative makes a crucial key to meet and understand human existence. The return to biographical research links to the necessity (and the possibility) to place a potential study on auto-creation in creative action within the interpretative paradigm. It makes it possible to define individual profiles of self-creation in the course of life in the context of original acts. In the broader research perspective, these profiles may become a signpost and confirmation of other people’s activities on their way to self-education. Moreover, they make it possible to establish similarities and differences between creators.
