AbstractIn my paper I deal with connections between relationships, their philosophical reflection and therapy. As a relationship I think here particularly a (therapeutic) relationship between two or more people, but also man's relationship to other realities and to himself. It turns out that the basic dynamics of the therapeutic relationship of somebody to himself or herself is determined by entering into specific relationships to others, especially to other people. Different methodological approaches can in different ways contribute to the understanding of the therapeutic dimension of relationships. A look at interpersonal relations from the perspective of communication presents significant contribution to the understanding of these interpersonal relations. Therapeutic approach through relationship is a good option anywhere the pathology of living out and of behaviour probably has its roots in the relationships. In order to understand various types of pathology in communication, and based on that then to search for an appropriate therapeutic approach, it is useful to distinguish two levels of communication, which different authors label in different ways, because they come to them through diverse paths, often as a result of analogy with other area of life. I introduce some concepts of analysis of communication in terms of their therapeutic potential.
