Abstract. The article presents an original interpretation of Nil Sorskys anthropology as human psychological phenomenology. The starting point of Nils anthropology is seen in the perception of man as microcosm. Human consciousness appears to be in constant motion, which can be given both downward and upward direction. The author concludes that man is seen in Nil Sorskys anthropology in more existential than essential terms. For our contemporaries the most relevant idea is one of permanent humans responsibility for his/her existence.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , , the Russian philosophy, medieval philosophy, anthropology, reflexion, microcosm, spiritual practices, responsibility.
