Abstract. The article discusses the philosophical doctrine of a human by the archimandrite of the Russian Orthodox Church Father Feofan (Avsenev). Father Feofan (Avsenev) has created an original philosophical system on the issue of a human. A human, according to the philosophers thought, has a complex, hierarchically built structure. By his body composition, he is associated with the inorganic kingdom, by plant functions - with the plant kingdom, and by earthly inclinations and soul abilities - with animals. Spirit crowns the hierarchy, the essence of which is incessant pursuit of the God. Platonic motives in Father Feofans (Avsenev) philosophy are of great interest not only as a distinctive direction of the Platonism philosophy, but also in the context of the formation of the original Russian religious-philosophical thought. But, unfortunately, Father Feofans (Avsenev) original philosophical system is not studied well enough and can be attributed to a number of "gaps" in the history of the Russian philosophy.
