In the reviewed monograph refers to a personality as a sensible and intelligent being, of his knowledge and values, of freedom and consciousness, which are manifestations of the aspiration of a personality towards being. The main way of human existence in the world is to be a personality. Today, there is a danger of levelling the personal beginning of human existence, when the science of man is increasingly naturalized, neurolyzed and computerized. Such a levelling leads to post-humanism and post-humanity. It is on one side.
In the article about the miracle, the author sketches briefly the history of philosophy of miracle, in which the miracle appears as a manifestation of the significance of being and truth in this world. The miracle is considered from Antiquity (Plato and Aristotle) till contemporary phenomenologists, who are the representatives of the theological or religious turn in phenomenology (Marion, Manoussakis, Kearney).
