This textbook discusses and systemises several selected topics of philosophical anthropology. The problem of man cannot be grasped through only one main principle or aspect (as the principle of his or her "humanity"). The chapters of this book rather outline several specific aspects which essentially characterize human beings (such as rationality, formation of culture, freedom, personality and interpersonality). The text is primarily intended for bachelor students of philosophy.
Jana Trajtelova teaches at the Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, Trnava University, Slovakia.
